Tell us about the family you would like to nominate for Christmas assistance. Anyone in the community can nominate an individual or family to receive a special Christmas blessing, but SHHH!!...it's a secret! We want to be able to surprise them. We ask that you do not nominate your own family.

HopeMatch serves the following counties and areas: Mecklenburg County, Union County, Cabarrus County, and the Fort Mill Area.

Thanks for taking the time to nominate someone this season!

Nominate A Family

What if I do not know all of the answers to the questions on the Nomination Form?
Please complete the form to the best of your ability for the family you are nominating.  Do not contact the family you are nominating if you do not have some of the information on the form, as we would like this to remain a surprise for them if they are chosen.  We will get the remaining information if we choose the family.  The most important thing is to make sure you give us details about their situation and a contact phone number.
I need help for my own family.  Can I nominate myself?

We cannot accept families who complete this nomination form for their own family.  Each family needs to be nominated by someone outside of their home who knows of their situation.  This is our only rule.

I was contacted by someone who asked me to nominate them, but I’m not sure that they really are in need of the help.  What should I do?

If you have been contacted by a family that requests you nominate them for assistance, please be aware that you are under no obligation to do so unless you feel like they legitimately need the help.  We rely on our community to give us accurate and legitimate nominations.   We take our donors financial commitments to HopeMatch very seriously and want to assure that the families who are truly in need are getting the help. 
 

How will the family know if they are chosen?  Will you let them know if they are not chosen?

Please be aware that we receive many nominations and are not able to help everyone who is nominated.  We will contact the family directly if they are chosen to receive help by the second week of December.  Due to the large number of nominations we receive, we are not not able to let families know if we are not able to help.  This is also why we would like the nomination to remain a surprise.

   
 

Thank you so much for your help!
