That means if you set up a monthly donation in December to donate $5 your total 2020 investment is $5, but that gift will get matched with $105, meaning your $5 gift actually was $110!!!  This can be done to both the GIC & CSAC so you are able to donate $5 to both GIC and CSAC monthly we would get an additional $200 on top of your donation being matched dollar for dollar!!  We are looking for 17 more monthly donations to meet our goal.
