My husband's employer, a state college, doesn;t match his 403b (they do match his state pension program), and my last corporate employer didn't match the 401k. Not that I'm advocating you do this, but the matching isn't a required part of a 403b retirement program. I would start by picking up all expenses of the plan and then see what sort of match your CFO thinks your organization can afford. You could start with a small match the first year and increase it later. That would be better than starting with a bigger match and having to ratchet back later.
