  Can private matching money on government grants be
  counted as a gift?
Frequently Asked Questions

← Back to Frequently Asked Questions Main Page 

This can be counted as a gift. i.e. A donor matches money received from government.

Government grants or matching money however cannot be counted as gifts even though organizations would often like to make special recognition of government as donors.

A way in which to do this and still not violate any counting rules is to have a "below the line" item on campaign statements with language that would be similar to "Government grants received during the campaign period."
