A Donor Perspective: Matching Funds Pool

Matching fund supporters were integral to the development and sustainability of each Blooming Art showcase. Each year, Swanee Hunt’s foundation cultivated donors and built relationships while also engaging other philanthropic families and giving institutions, and ARTWorks for Kids adapted the matching policies every year in response to successes and lessons learned.

“Some of our regular donors have participated and some new donors have emerged because of the matching program. It’s a strategy that is working for us and energizing donors.”
