How much will be matched?
Each year, NewsMatch determines an individual donation cap and campaign match cap.
The individual donation cap is the maximum amount that will be matched of each individual donation made to an organization. NewsMatch will match any donation by an individual up to this individual donation cap amount. The individual donation cap is $1,000 per donor.
The national campaign match cap is the maximum amount that a news organization with annual expenses under $1 million will receive from NewsMatch. The campaign match cap for 2022 is $15,000. This is calculated based on the size of the NewsMatch fund and the number of participating organizations with operating expenses under $1 million. Due to the program’s shift to a multi-year fundraising strategy, it is unlikely that the match cap will increase as it has in years past, but ongoing updates will be provided via email and on NewsMatch HQ.
