#GivingTuesdayIndia Matching Funds
There will be $12,000 in matching funds available on #GivingTuesdayIndia (between09:00:00 IST to 23:59:59 IST on Oct. 8, 2019) applied as a 30% match on eligible donations up to $500 per unique donor per organization while funds last during #GivingTuesdayIndia.
Donations will be matched based on the order in which they are received.
As a fairness mechanism, participating organizations will be capped at $2,000 in matching funds.
The Daan Utsav - #GivingTuesdayIndia Campaign leaderboard will display the remaining matching funds. We encourage you to get donations in early because matching funds may run out quickly.
For the purposes of calculating matching amounts, donations made in other currencies will be converted to USD. The exchange rate will be estimated at the time of the donation, but may be subject to change until the donation settles with the donor’s bank or credit card. Funds will be disbursed using the exchange rate based on the settlement value of each transaction.
GlobalGiving reserves the right to make final decisions on all matters concerning the allocation of matching funds.
Only donations made by unique donors per project will be matched. Unique donors are determined using numerous criteria, including but not limited to name, email address, credit card number, mailing address, and IP address. We are monitoring these and other parameters in our system to ensure that only unique, distinct donors are counted.
Monthly Giving Match:
New recurring donations made during the Daan Utsav - #GivingTuesdayIndia Campaign up to $200 per donor per project will get an additional 100% match on the initial donation as long as it remains active for a minimum of four total payments.
New monthly donations that come in while #GivingTuesdayIndia matching funds still remain on Oct. 8 will be matched at 130% (an immediate 30% match, followed by a 100% match after four recurring payments). Recurring donations that come in after the one-time matching funds run out will receive the 100% match after the fourth donation.
Monthly donations made by project leaders or staff of the recipient project or organization are not eligible for the recurring match.
Donation Methods + Eligibility:
Eligible Campaign Donations: Online donations (credit card, debit card, PayPal, Apple Pay, and individually purchased GlobalGiving gift cards) and mobile donations through M-Changa will count towards your campaign totals and be eligible for matching. Donations must be made by the account or cardholder.
Ineligible campaign donations: include but are not limited to cash, check, corporate gift card redemptions, text-to-give, CAF check, CAF online, wire transfers, gift aid, donations made by JustGiving, donations made on a GlobalGiving corporate or organizational giving site, or donations made directly to an organization rather than a project.
Please note that all donations are final. GlobalGiving cannot change the time, date, or status of a donation after it is processed for any reason.
Any activity not in the spirit of requesting separate individuals to support donations is being moderated by GlobalGiving and GlobalGiving reserves the right to permanently disqualify organizations for any attempts of misconduct.
Tax-Efficient Giving + Fulfillment Fee:
Tax Efficiency: GlobalGiving is a registered nonprofit charity in the United States and England and Wales. Donations made by eligible donors in the United States can be claimed as tax deductible contributions on United States tax returns. Donations made by eligible donors in the United Kingdom can claim Gift Aid (an extra 25% added to eligible donations by the UK Government) when they donate in GBP.
Fulfillment Fee: GlobalGiving charges a minimal nonprofit support fee plus a 3% processing fee. For US and UK registered organizations the nonprofit support fee is 5%. Organizations outside the US and UK will be charged a 7% nonprofit support fee. During this campaign, the fee only applies to the initial donation and not to prize funds. The fee helps cover the costs we incur to promote your organization and projects, to provide you with fundraising training and tools, and to maintain and improve our online technology in order to keep you connecting with new donors.
