Matching Programs FAQ
A: When you give to matching, your donations go an average of 22x further to provide food, clean water, irrigation, education, and more, helping families around the globe rise out of poverty. This is made possible through highly competitive grants awarded to FH by institutional donors. Grants vary by country and partner. On average, every dollar given is matched 22x.

A: FH has multiple match opportunities provided by multiple donors, and each project is on its own timeline. We have a team devoted to the ongoing process of applying for and managing these grants as they are awarded. It’s a rigorous process, as most grants are invite-only and include detailed requirements. FH must promise to contribute a portion of the funds to receive the grants. Your support is what makes it possible for FH to meet those contributions. Each year, we calculate an average match for all of our active grants.
A: To qualify for the 22x matching program, we must fund these projects as a whole rather than individually. When you give to matching, you are supporting multiple lifesaving projects, like reducing malnutrition in Guatemala and providing drought relief in the Horn of Africa.
