Charidy Announces $60,000 Matching Grants Competition
Does your organization have what it takes to run an online crowdfunder, but still needs the motivation or the matching grants to get it done?
If you can prove that you’ve got all of your “ducks in a row,” and that all you need to start a campaign is the leverage of a matching grant, then one of three grand prizes can be yours!
In today’s day and age, a successful crowdfunding campaign can hardly be imagined without matching donors. But it really was just under 6 years ago, when Charidy introduced the world-changing model of matched giving crowdfunding campaigns. Now, hundreds of philanthropists are channeling their major gifts through crowdfunding because they all understand the powerful ripple effect that it commands.
Despite this, there are still thousands of capable organizations who have not yet taken advantage of the amazing benefits that crowdfunding has to offer.
Realizing this gap, two pillars of Tzedakah – long-time Charidy matchers Eli & Freida Nash and the Meronim Foundation – have stepped up. Both the Nash’s and the Meromim Foundation have been responsible for raising tens of millions of dollars through matching campaigns for hundreds of different organizations.
Applicants will need to “get their ducks in a row” and apply before November 18th for the first round of submissions.
After applications are reviewed, 30 Finalists will be selected. Those finalists will then have to send in a one-minute video to show why they are best poised to run a campaign.
The winner will be announced on Dec 1st with the campaign that the grant is being used for needing to be complete by March 31st.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to help three new organizations that have never held a crowdfunding campaign,” said Moshe Hecht, Chief Innovation Officer of Charidy.”We want them to serve as an example for other organizations that a successful crowdfunding campaign can be possible for them too.”
