<h1 class="tribe-events-single-event-title">Macie’s Matching Fundraiser</h1>

The Macie Grace Foundation is holding its 3rd Macie’s Matching Fundraiser. This fundraiser benefits Lee Hill Elementary School PTO, located in Fredericksburg, VA.
Lee Hill Elementary School’s PTO is currently raising funds to make improvements to their school’s playground, including adding a new set of swings.
The fundraiser launched by the Macie Grace Foundation on October 16th, will run through November 16th 2022 with a goal of $4,500. Every dollar donated to the foundation, up to $4,500, will be matched with an overall goal of $9,000 being donated to Lee Hill Elementary School’s PTO. Funds donated now will go towards the project with an estimated finish date in 2023.
The Macie’s Matching Fundraiser program was started by the Macie Grace Foundation in 2020 as a way to assist communities update and establish safe and accessible playgrounds around the country.
“We launched this fundraiser as a way to celebrate our sweet Macie’s life since her passing 4 years ago this month. This Macie’s Matching fundraiser is particularly special to us since Macie’s Mom’s family are local to the area. It’s important to us as a family, and as a foundation, to be able to educate and advocate for safe and accessible playgrounds for all ages. To be able to see how Macie’s story has had an impact locally is heartwarming to say the least. I hope we will be able to help other communities locally in the future.” – Bridget Burger, VP Macie Grace Foundation

The Macie Grace Foundation was established in 2019 in memory of Macie Grace. Macie tragically lost her life October 19, 2018, in a 100% preventable accident while playing on the playground at her favorite place, preschool. The Macie Grace Foundation is committed to Make Every Day A Safe Day. We do this by increasing playground safety awareness necessary to create and maintain a happy, fun, and safe environment in an effort to prevent injury or death.
