Chapter Matching Funds Program

Supporting the Fund-Raising Efforts of our Community Chapters

Your chapter can apply for our Chapter Matching Funds program once a year to support a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization! This is a great program to enhance fundraising efforts.

How does this program work?

Your chapter conducts a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization, and if approved, Royal Neighbors will match that amount up to $1,000. The fundraising event and nonprofit is up to your chapter and can be different each year!

Please note: There are instances when a chapter may hold numerous fundraisers for one organization to reach a fundraising goal. This is okay. Chapters will need to submit a report after the final fundraiser, and one check will be sent for the entire matched amount (up to $1,000) to the organization at this time. Chapters can only use this program for one organization per year.

It’s time to put on your creative thinking caps and turn your chapter’s passion into action.

Program Process:

  1. Complete and submit an application prior to hosting the fundraiser
  2. If approved, your chapter conducts the fundraiser
  3. After the fundraiser is complete, your chapter will submit the final report
  4. Once we receive that report, we reach out to the nonprofit to verify your donation
  5. Once the nonprofit verifies your donation, we will issue payment for the match amount and send it directly to the nonprofit
