In response to the growing crisis, the agency is urgently asking for more contributions to _____ up for its sharp decline in purchasing power.

Which out of make and making is correct to use here ? I understand with prepositions I need to use ing form like I look forward to meeting you but I don't know if the to in question sentence is preposition or not. Also let me know if there are any other grammatical errors in the sentence.

The word make is correct.

In response to the growing crisis, the agency is urgently asking for more contributions to make up for its sharp decline in purchasing power.

Your other example

I look forward to meeting you

does not use to in the same way. In the first case it part of the reason

asking for more contributions / to make up for

but in the second it is part of the first verb

I look forward to / meeting you.
