What are matching funds?
Matching funds are additional dollars contributed directly to your nonprofit from a donor, company or community partner (or some combination) to help encourage donations to your nonprofit. Matching funds should be 1:1 matches, which allows you to say your dollar will be doubled! Your matching fund will appear on your nonprofit profile and will count down as they are satisfied. Nonprofits will be able to add matching funds to their profile until 5pm on September 19.
Matching funds allow donors to:
Multiply the impact of their gift for a nonprofit about which they care deeply.
Does the matching fund money get bonused?
No. Each nonprofit should receive the matching fund money directly from their donors. Matching fund donors can write a check or grant directly to your organization, outside of the Giving Day platform.
Are matching funds a dollar-for-dollar match?
Yes, matching funds must be a dollar for dollar.
Will my matching funds appear on my nonprofit profile?
Yes, your match amount will be listed on your profile page. As you raise money on #NTXGivingDay, your match goal will count down until the match is satisfied.
