there are multiple rationales for requiring matching funds
There are multiple rationales for requiring matching funds:

Provision of resources by the university and/or commercial partner is the strongest indicator of the priority and anticipated value of the project.

Matching is a tangible demonstration of the leveraging value of the Foundation funding.

More projects can be completed as a consequence of enlarging the resource pool via matching.

The match and repayment plan must not be so high as to discourage university and industry participation because the risk/reward ratio appears imbalanced.
