Starting September 1, 2014 at 00:00:00 am Eastern and continuing until all funds are depleted, all contributions to the Safer World Fund, and the projects that comprise it, will be matched 50%, giving an extra boost to the impact your contributions will have.
There are a total of $50,000 in matching funds available.
Donations will be matched in the order that they are received.
Individual donations up to $1,000 per person per project are eligible for matching.
Donations larger than $1,000 will only be matched for the first $500 of matching funds while funds remain.
No project may receive more than $10,000 of the total matching funds. This $10,000 limit per project is to help ensure that as many projects benefit from the matching funds as possible.
Online donations are considered unique if they are made from separate email addresses. The same credit card may be used for multiple online donations. Please note that GlobalGiving will be moderating this in the background and reserves the right to disqualify any attempts of misconduct.
Fulfillment fee for donations: GlobalGiving charges a 15% fulfillment fee on donations (including matching funds) but works to keep the fees you pay as low as possible while providing you great services and resources. The 15% fee covers all transactional charges such as credit card fees, as well as helps cover the costs we incur to promote organizations and projects, provide them with fundraising training and tools, and maintain and improve our online technology in order to keep you connecting with new donors. With our add-on option, we also offer the donor the opportunity to make an additional donation to cover the fee so organizations receive 100% of the donations intended for their projects.
Please note that GlobalGiving maintains the right to make a final decision on all matters concerning the adjudication of unique donors and final results of the Safer World Matching campaign.
