In addition to the traditional fundraising sources, you should consider asking other nonprofit organizations to provide some or all of the required match, particularly nonprofits that are part of your coalition, since they may be able to provide an emergency or one-time grant. Examples of other nonprofits that have given to Covering Kids & Families grantees include the United Way and the March of Dimes.

While the United Way is primarily a federated giving organization, it will occasionally give emergency grants to organizations in its community that it feels are providing a valuable service and are in dire need of funding. You should consult with your local United Way to inquire about this opportunity and the application process.

Other nonprofits, such as the March of Dimes, have also contributed money toward the match requirement. While organizations like this may not seem obvious to you as a source of potential funds, you should look at other nonprofit organizations in your coalition and determine if they may be able to provide support and would be interested in funding a particular aspect of the work you do.
