18A:62-35. State matching funds for endowment contributions to four-year independent institutions
7. With respect to a fiscal year in which at least one person, corporation or other business entity, or foundation makes an endowment contribution to a four-year independent institution of higher education that receives direct State aid, or to a foundation institutionally related to such an institution, in the amount of $1,000,000 or more, the recipient institution or foundation shall be eligible to apply for and to receive State matching funds in the amount of $100,000 with respect to each such contribution. There shall be no limit on the number of such endowment contributions from single contributors in a contribution year in the amount of $1,000,000 or more each for which such application may be made. Any such application shall be made only with respect to the entire contribution year and may be submitted at any time after the close of that contribution year up until the application deadline established by the State Treasurer. Following the receipt of all applications, but not later than the 90th day following the application deadline, the State Treasurer shall determine the amount of State matching funds to which the applicant institution or foundation is entitled under this section and shall pay that amount from the endowment fund to the institution or foundation, including with that payment an explanation of the denial, if any, of any claim of entitlement to matching funds for which the institution or foundation had applied. An institution or foundation that shall have received payment of State matching funds under this section with respect to a contribution year shall not thereafter receive additional State matching funds with respect to the same contribution year.
