How to Secure Matching Funds


It’s always a good idea to have matching funds for your projects or programs—even if a funder doesn’t require it.


When you include matching funds, it demonstrates to funders that they are not the only one with “skin in the game.” It shows you already have support from other stakeholders.


Fortunately, with the right documentation all nonprofit organizations should be able to identify in-kind support.


During this workshop, the presenter will show you how to secure matching funds to increase your success in securing grant awards.


This session will help you:

  • understand the definition of matching funds;
  • identify ways to secure matches from cash or in-kind sources; and,
  • find ways to demonstrate matching funds in your budget and budget narratives.

You’ll walk away ready to build credibility with funders by demonstrating the diverse support your programs have in your community.
