If the sponsor of your match has a photo or logo that you/they would like to feature, you can upload that here to be displayed along with your match. This section is optional, but to add a photo, click “Select Image” and click “Apply” once you’ve adjusted it.

e. Set Available Matching Funds

Here you’ll want to input the total amount of funds available for this specific match.

f. Set Maximum Matching Funds Per Donation

If there is a maximum match amount per individual donation you can set that number under the box that says “Maximum Match per Individual Donation”. If someone makes a donation greater than this amount, it will only match up to the maximum you set.

g. Set Match Start Date

If your match has specific guidelines regarding when the donation must be made in order to receive a match, you can select the starting time of when the match should apply by clicking the box under “Donation Matching Start Time” and selecting the date and time from the drop down menu.

h. Set Match End Date

If there is a point where donations will no longer be counted towards matching funds, you can set the end date of the match by clicking the box under “Donation Matching End Time” and selecting the date and time you want the match to end from the drop down.

i. Add Match Description

To give your supporters more details about this specific match, you’ll want to add a description. Here you can let your supporters know how much their gift will be matched by as well as any other info you want to include about this opportunity.

j. Enable Auto Matching

Here you have the option to enable automatic matches to all of your donations that you receive for the Giving Day. When you check this box, an offline donation equal to the donation amount (unless it is over your maximum match per donation amount) will be created automatically so the match amount is also shown on your Giving Day profile and will count towards your totals. This only works for 1:1 matches.

Once you've completed this form, click "Save" to view your match. From this page you can view, edit, or remove this match from your Giving Day profile.
