Edit: Thank you all for your answers, I consider this issue resolved! The answer appears to be that there is no easy or universal platform that enforces charity-matching commitments, but that
- charities are often willing to work with you to set up a match if you are a moderately big relative to the size of the charity (my $2000 might have "a shot" with a small charity), and
- I should look for existing matching programs on fundraising or crowdfunding platforms.
I would like to be able to pick a charity, set up an interface for people to contribute to that charity, and promise to match all contributions made through this interface up to a certain amount (probably around $1000). Alternatively, I would like to find someone else who is already doing this and donate to their chosen charity.
Does anyone know of a (low-cost) service that makes this possible? I don't want to have to learn any cryptocurrency type techniques
I'm guessing the challenges are proving that I will match contributions, and ensuring that the contributors have actually contributed to my chosen charity.
Failing this, are there websites that aggregate charity-matching commitments (where I could search for things like "the Elizabeth Moneybags Foundation will match charitable contributions to the Derek Zoolander Center up to $10,000 for the period 2/1/2018-6/1/2018")?
