Location: Ashland , Oregon
Year founded: 2015


Cause Match is the Kickstarter of matching grants. Over $100M is granted through giving circles annually and crowdfunding raises around $1.5B for social causes. Despite the fact that matching grants have been proven to raise giving by 40%, no platform combines the power of these two collective giving mechanisms. Cause Match allows grantors to offer conditional matching grants to grantees based-on whether they can crowdfund a given percent of the grant. The platform is free for all grantors and charges a 2% fee for the funds raised through crowdfunding. My name is Joseph Bornstein; I’m building the platform using proven technology through WordPress. This will be the world’s first crowdfunding/giving circle platform that helps giving circle grantees gain matching funds through successful crowdfunding campaigns.
