Our Supported

Programs

We partner with a number of Evansville organizations whose mission aligns with ours, such as the Boys & Girls Club of Evansville, the YMCA of Southwest Indiana and the Highland Baseball Challenger League, to fund programs/projects which provide youth athletics, education, and social development to under-served areas of the Evansville community.

Summer

Learning Loss Prevention


In 2016, Mattingly Charities partnered with the YMCA of Southwestern Indiana to sponsor the Glenwood Leadership Academy location of the Summer Learning Loss program.

This program is part of a National YMCA movement to positively impact the reading levels of children in YMCA communities.  Our Evansville YMCA is one of 96 YMCAs in the nation to host the program, and includes 2.5 hours of literacy and 4.5 hours of fun enrichment activities each day. 

Last year, over 95% of the students avoided summer learning loss.

Minds In Motion


Mattingly Charities is excited to partner with Delaware Elementary School throughout the 2018/2019 school year to support their Minds In Motion Program. 

This program uses a combination of creative movement, dance, and tactile activities to allow students to learn by carrying out physical activities, rather than listening to a lecture or watching demonstrations.

Splash Into Summer


Mattingly Charities is proud to support the Splash Into Summer project, created by the Evansville Parks Foundation in partnership with local corporate sponsors and community supporters.

This annual donation drive collects items such as swim trunks/bathing suits, beach towels, flip flops, and swim diapers for children to use at neighborhood pools.  The goal is to collect donated items that will be given to children and families to make swimming more affordable while encouraging attendance at city swimming pools and participation in local swimming competitions.

Money raised by the community will be used to help offset the cost of free cookouts for swimmers at neighborhood pools this summer and to cover the pool admission for children from families that cannot afford to pay.
