When you make an Unrestricted Donation, your gift can address a broad range of local needs — including future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift is made. We evaluate all aspects of community well-being: education, child and youth development, health and aging, homelessness and transitional housing, arts and culture, the environment, and more. The flexibility of your unrestricted gift enables The MatchingFund organization to respond quickly to the community’s most pressing needs, today and tomorrow.
Because you set no restrictions on the use of your gift, it enables our board to do what they do best — assess community needs and respond by awarding matching funds to the nonprofit organizations that undertake our community’s most critical work. Unrestricted Donations enable The MatchingFund to support long-term solutions; respond quickly to emergencies; and meet changing social, cultural, educational, or environmental needs in our community.
