18A:62-37. State matching funds for donations to four-year public institutions
9. With respect to a fiscal year in which at least one person, corporation or other business entity, or foundation shall have made a donation to a four-year public institution of higher education, or to a foundation institutionally related to such a public institution, in the amount of $1,000,000 or more, the recipient institution or foundation shall be eligible to receive State matching funds under this section. In the fiscal year next following the donation year, the institution or foundation may apply to the State Treasurer for State matching funds in an amount equal to 10% of the amount of each such donation received in the donation year. There shall be no limit on the number of such donations from single donors in that donation 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 donation year and may be submitted at any time after the close of that donation 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 subsection and shall pay that amount from the grant 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 donation year shall not thereafter receive additional State matching funds with respect to the same donation year.
