CHAPTER MATCHING FUND PROGRAM                     

There are two types of Matched Chapter Grants: Perpetual Matched, and Annual Matched.

1. Perpetual Matched Chapter Grants are those designated Endowed Funds established by a chapter that are in the process of funding to, or have reached their minimum $30,000 threshold to yield a perpetual $1,000 per year award at the 3.5% "Spending Rate".
2. Annual Matched Chapter Grants are those designated funds that have no endowed principal and are donated, matched and disbursed in the year received.
