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 main and partner funds will match any donation by an individual up to this individual donation cap amount. The individual donation cap is $1,000 per donor.

The main fund campaign match cap is the maximum amount that a news organization with annual expenses under $1 million will receive from NewsMatch. The match cap is calculated based on the size of the NewsMatch fund and the number of participating organizations with operating expenses under $1 million.  In 2022, the campaign match cap was $15,000.

The preliminary match cap for NewsMatch 2023 will be announced by October, 2023, so please check back!
