Early this month On Belay secured a generous commitment from an anonymous Belayer. This donor offered $5,000 to support the on going program efforts. These funds are committed conditionally as a matching challenge to the board and staff of On Belay to raise $5,000 in individual and business donations between July 15th and November 15th 2011.
Every dollar generated through direct individual and business contributions during this time will be matched by the donor – this does not include contributions made to special events or foundation grants. Donors may be returning or new donors and can include business contributors.
In short this means for every dollar raised between now and November 15th, which meet the stated criteria, will count as two dollars. A gift of $100 becomes $200 and so on.
Upon close of the campaign period On Belay will provide the donor with a report of donations received during the campaign period and a matching gift of up to $5,000 will be made to the organization. On Belay will only receive a match for the funds obtained during the campaign period, if this is less then $5,000 the match will reflect only the amount raised.
