About JFN Matching Grant Initiatives
Jewish Funders Network Matching Grant Initiatives have generated over $100 million in new funding for Jewish causes.
Unlike other matching grants, which leverage the donor's funds to spur donations to a particular organization, JFN matching grant initiatives boost philanthropic investment in an entire field or issue area. JFN Matching Grant Initiatives leverage the sponsor's funds to encourage new donors to make their first ever (or significantly increased) grants to a specific field by offering matching funds directly to the organization that the new donors’ funding will support. Because new donors choose the specific organization within broad funding parameters, donors who participate understand that the matching funds are indisputably new money, entirely contingent upon the gifts they decide to make. At the same time by requiring that eligible donors be making their first ever (or significantly increased) gifts, the initiatives offer the sponsoring foundation the security that their gifts are genuinely generating new funds from the individual donors. Sponsoring a matching grant initiative is a benefit of JFN membership.
