Matching Gift Programs

These multi-pledge programs encourage new leadership and higher levels of giving throughout Northeast Florida and allow United Way to make lasting changes in people’s lives.

 

The J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Challenge Grant

 

The Weaver Challenge allows an individual to join the Tocqueville Society with a contribution of $6,500 and inspires current members to strive for higher levels of giving. Matching opportunities are also available for young professionals joining the Tocqueville Society with a gift of $5,000.

 

  • An individual who pledges $6,500 in the first year will be matched by an additional $3,500 in that person’s name, making the donor a member of the Tocqueville Society.
  • The second year, the donor agrees to contribute $7,500, and the grant gives $2,500.
  • The third year, the donor agrees to contribute $8,500, and the grant gives $1,500.
  • In the fourth year, the donor agrees to personally contribute $10,000.

 


 

Step-up Program

 

This program allows a member to be recognized as a $15,000 donor in the Tocqueville Society with an initial contribution of $12,500. The donor
makes a two-year commitment to United Way and is recognized at the $15,000 level of giving immediately. For example:

 

  • The first year, the donor agrees to contribute $12,500 and is recognized at the new $15,000 recognition level of giving.
  • The second year, the donor pledges to personally contribute $15,000.

The donor makes a five-year commitment to United Way and is recognized as a member of this level immediately. For example, if an individual pledges $15,000 in the first year, the Challenge Grant will pledge an additional $10,000 in that person’s name, making the donor a member of the $25,000 – $49,999 level.
