  • Donors make a gift to a charity's endowment fund at GSCF.

    • Donors can make a gift to one charity or multiple charities all within a single transaction for "one-stop shopping!"
    • Donations up to a maximum of $2,000 per charity per person will be matched.
      • Example: Donors can contribute $4,000 to two charities ($2,000 each) and both $2,000 gifts will be matched. But if a donor contributes $4,000 to one charity, only the first $2,000 will be matched.
    • 100% of the donor's gift will go to the principal of the organization's endowed fund and will generate income based on the foundation's current spending policy (4.5%).
      • Example: A $100 donation will become part of the fund's principal and generate approximately $4.50 every year to support that charity forever.
  • GSCF matches the donor's gift proportionally up to 50% in the form of an instant cash grant to the charity to use for current needs.

    • The charity may use the match however they choose, including special projects and basic operating costs. Some charities also opt to put the match back into their endowment to meet future needs.
    • No single charity can receive more than half of the total match.
  • $150,000 in matching funds available, plus bonus grants & prizes:

    • Most Donors, First Place - $750
    • Most Donors, Second Place - $500
    • Most Donors, Third Place - $250
