A matching gift is a challenge gift. You pledge to match funds donated within one month towards the matching gift, up to a maximum amount. At the end of the month, you donate an amount equivalent to the matching funds.
For example, if you donate $5000 as a matching fund, and $6000 is donated in matches, you will send in your $5000 at the end of the month. However if only $4000 is received, you are only obligated to give us $4000. However, we will always welcome the full amount.
A matching drive reflects the good will of donors towards the fund contributor, so we always try to exceed the amount donated.
