Matching

Magnifying the impact of community

Vitalik's Liberal Radicalism

For our donation matching campaign, we are the first to implement the Liberal Radical concept to fundraising for 501(c)3 verified nonprofits.
The Liberal Radicalism equation is designed to empower smaller donations. Our matching pool will be donated proportionally (based on the equation) to organizations according to their number of unique donors, as opposed to the amount of money raised.
For example, if Code for America raises 1000 ETH from one wealthy donor, and Rainforest Trust raises 50 ETH from 50 donations from smaller donation amounts, Rainforest Trust would receive more of the pledged matching funds.
We consider Liberal Radicalism to be a more democratic matching program as the impact of many small contributions are magnified.
WeTrust will match ETH to ETH for up to $100,000 dollars worth of ETH donations.

Rules of matching program

To count as a qualified donor, a user must have a Spring User account, and donate at least 0.1 ETH.
Final matching amount will be updated based on Nov 28th, based on the number of verified qualified user accounts.
