Meet your Match Challenge

Invest in tomorrow with a gift today 


Meet Your Match Challenge is a matched giving incentive to encourage long term charitable giving
For each £2 you donate, Foundation Scotland will add £1 match to help grow your new fund established under the Challenge.

Who can participate?

Any individual or family who wish to establish a new named permanent endowment fund with Foundation Scotland (also known as a FS Invested Trust).


How it works

  • For every £2 you donate, Foundation Scotland will match with £1. The total match available is £500,000 and is available on a first-come, first served basis.
  • Gifts must meet a minimum level in order to gain a match. The minimum donation is £25,000 and the maximum amount of match funding available is £50,000. 
  • You are welcome to set up a larger Foundation Scotland Trust, however a sum in excess of the maximum £100,000 donation amount is not eligible for match funding.
  • Gifts of cash are eligible for match funding and can attract Gift Aid for UK tax payers. We will match the value of gifts including Gift Aid.
  • Gifts of publicly quoted shares can also be considered for match funding. Please note the donation of shares to a charity do not attract Gift Aid, however, you may benefit from other tax reliefs.
