Matching Grants

What is a matching grant?

Matching grants are a type of funding where an organization pledges to match, either fully or partially, the contributions made by another party. For example, if a donor pledges to provide a matching grant of $10,000, any contributions made by another party will be matched by an additional $10,000 from the donor, effectively doubling the impact of the contributions.

At times, organizations will receive matching grants from the Christ Foundation as part of our partnership with them. We endorse these organizations and their missions, and if you're seeking a cause to support, you can find a list of the organizations we partner with below.

Active Matching Grants

“Our Heritage family extends beyond our walls to our community partners who make Heritage Christian School the premiere choice in Canton, Ohio for academic excellence grounded in Christian education and values.”

You can double your dollars to help teachers! Recently, The Christ Foundation provided us with a unique and generous way to help supplement our teachers’ salaries through a matching grant. For the next three years, all donations received through this program will be matched by the foundation dollar for dollar up to a maximum of $50,000 per year.
