Any donation from any group/individual can be matched 3 to 1 with federal aid sportfish restoration funds. The only dollars which cannot be matched by federal aid are those from a federal agency or federally funded NGO. As far as earmarking donations for specific use...that isn't exactly how it works, but funds for specific projects or specific use do get used as requested. Donations from OSBA are used on specific equipment or projects approved by OSBA.
