Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity for Indiana nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to participate in a fundraising campaign. Participants will receive matching funds from the funding source based on donations received. Funding is intended to encourage charitable giving in the community. Eligible organizations must be located in Wayne County.

The Wayne County Foundation’s Challenge Match Initiative grew out of a need to help local not-for-profit organizations raise unrestricted operating dollars more efficiently. It quickly became a means to help organizations strengthen their development functions and a fun way for donors to express which charities are most important to them.

How it works:
- Participating organizations are given the opportunity to secure a dollar-for-dollar match from the Foundation, up to a specified match goal, based on qualifying gifts they receive from the community in a designated period of time.
- Match goals are assigned based on the organization’s request and the Foundation’s assessment of the application. These goals represent the dollar amount the Foundation will match, and essentially, the maximum amount an organization can expect to receive from the Foundation. In no way, however, do they limit the total amount of money an organization can raise.
- Match goals have threshold amounts associated with them. These thresholds must be achieved
to trigger a dollar-for-dollar match from the Foundation up to the amount of the match goal.
Dollars raised over and above the goal are not matched.
- Gifts must be received during the Match Period in the form of cash, check, credit
card, or publicly-traded securities
