Although disaster relief always elicits many matching opportunities, matching programs and challenge grants exist year-round. I will continue maintaining this website for all matching opportunities in the hope that individuals will check the site prior to making their donations.
My goal is to help organizations reach their matching pledges in order to maximize charitable giving.
