Foodland does NOT match donations dollar for dollar. Instead, this is how it works: (from the give aloha website):
“Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match each donation up to a total of $350,000 for all organizations combined. If total customer donations exceed $350,000, the matching gift will be divided proportionately among all participating organizations (see Calculation of Matching Gifts).
Matching gifts will be calculated at the end of the program. Organizations will receive 100% of all customer donations given to their organization, plus their % of Foodland and the Western Union Foundation’s $350,000 matching gift.
The portion of the matching gift that each organization will receive will be based on the total dollar amount of customer donations designated to that organization as a % of all customer donations received for all organizations. For example, if total combined customer donations for all participating organizations equal $1,000,000, and $10,000 (1% of total) in donations are designated for organization XYZ, then organization XYZ will receive 1% of $350,000, or $3,500 from Foodland and the Western Union Foundation’s matching gift in addition to the $10,000 from customer donations. Total gift to organization XYZ = $13,500″
