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 national campaign match cap is the maximum amount that a news organization with annual expenses under $1 million will receive from NewsMatch.

The initial match caps will be announced in September and are calculated based on the size of the NewsMatch fund and the number of participating organizations with operating expenses under $1 million. NewsMatch actively fundraises until the end of the year, and match cap updates will be announced monthly thereafter.
