Testimonials

  • “The MatchingFund is an opportunity to make a tremendous impact on society by helping those who need it most.  Charlestonians have consistently been an incredibly generous community in their contributions to nonprofits both locally and globally. This enriches our society by taking care of others and “giving back”. Creating an incentive to “give back” more and perhaps more often by providing matching donations with the ease of online giving is a very powerful concept.
    I am proud that the MatchingFund was conceived and built in Charleston. I look forward to the progress of this most worthy endeavor.”
    Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr.

  • “The Matching Fund has been a great community partner- they do a fantastic job, are very flexible, and their costs structure is reasonable allowing more of our donations to go directly to provide meals for our recipients.   The ability to have their donations matched is very appealing to our supporters”
    George Roberts, President East Cooper Meals on Wheels
