Donation Match Terms

This year, starting on November 1, is offering a very attractive $250,000 true counterfactual donation match. (Realtime dashboard of remaining funds.)

  1. will match the first donation you make to each US 501(c)(3) nonprofit you give to 1:1 up to $100 per donor per nonprofit.

  2. Currently, will contribute an extra $10 to your donation if you click to share your donation after donating. This might change (what it was originally).

The Match Terms in’s words:

A donor can support multiple nonprofits, but only the first donation they make to each of those nonprofits will be matched. If someone makes two $50 donations to the same organization, then only the first $50 would be matched. If someone makes a $1000 donation, then only the first $100 is matched. If someone makes ten $100 donations to different organizations, then all ten donations will be matched.

If this sounds familiar...

It’s because 198 of you participated in a previous donation match sponsored by the same after seeing the post Make a $10 donation into $35 in December 2020.

We successfully directed $4,950 in matching funds to highly effective nonprofits during that match. It was quite popular because it only took ~3 minutes for each person to direct $25 in matching funds. I’m hopeful that even more of you will participate in’s current match since it’s just as easy and yet the limits are much higher.

    You can donate less than $100 and still get matched, but note that you will forfeit your ability to get the full match for that nonprofit, even if you donate again. Per the terms: “If someone makes two $50 donations to the same organization, then only the first $50 would be matched.”
