Nonprofit Material MATCH Program Process Overview
Upon completing the Information Form, organizations submitting a request for materials must also provide a formal Request Letter as well as a copy of their tax exemption letter from the IRS. Organizations without tax exemption must provide one of the following: documentation from the IRS indicating that tax exempt status for the organization is under review (including application submittal date) or a letter of support from an active fiscal sponsor, along with a copy of the fiscal sponsor's tax exemption letter.
Organizations will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:
Successful execution of mission, strength of need, alignment with LBC mission, availability of requested materials and project timeline. Applying organizations will be assigned a performance grade of 0-5 based on the information provided, with the following levels of support available:
Grade 5 ($500+ store credit)
Grade 4 ($400 store credit)
Grade 3 ($300 store credit)
Grade 2 ($200 store credit)
Grade 1 ($100 store credit)
Grade 0 (Encouraged to reapply the following year)
Applications are accepted year-round. Once your completed application is received and reviewed, we will notify you. Please allow 4-6 weeks processing time for your request. Applications that provide all of the information LBC requires and list specific and detailed material requests move through the approval process at a faster rate. After you receive approval, you will have six months to redeem your LBC credit. If your credit is not used within six months, you are welcome to reapply.
