Ausherman Family Foundation Awards Matching Grant

The Ausherman Family Foundation recently awarded IHA a matching grant opportunity.

“The Ausherman Family Foundation strives to empower the passion for change in Frederick,” confirms their Executive Director, Dr. Joyce Heptner. “The Trustees offer matching grants in hopes that the offer to match donated funds will encourage others to give. Therefore, twenty-five percent ($5,000) of the matching funds are required to come from new donors or donors who have not contributed to IHA in the past 24 months.”

The $20,000 matching challenge grant will be used to support IHA’s programs in Frederick County to benefit Frederick County residents, specifically IHA’s Housing Matters and the Purchase-Repair Homeownership programs.

“IHA is honored to have been awarded a challenge grant through the Ausherman Family Foundation this year,” states Patricia Motter, President of IHA. “This funding goes to the heart and core of our mission to provide affordable housing opportunities and to improve economic stability for seniors, working families and individuals. Every dollar raised through matching funds stays in Frederick County to help its residents – and we are thrilled to have been entrusted to make a difference using the grant funding for financial education and helping to qualify buyers to purchase homes in our home county.”

For more information on how to make a matching donation, please contact Patricia Motter, President of IHA, at 301-662-4225 x1206 or
