GlobalGiving’s July Bonus Day runs from 09:00:00 ET to 23:59:59 ET on Thursday, July 18, 2019, or until funds run out.
All Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations are eligible to participate. All associated active projects and microprojects will be automatically included on the leaderboard (no opt in required).
New projects must be submitted to GlobalGiving for review by Friday July 12 at 5 p.m. ET.
For microprojects, check the expiration date as GlobalGiving cannot extend the 90 day time period.
Please allow for 2-3 business days for GlobalGiving to approve project reports, project appeals, and project edits related to the campaign.
Disbursement of funds raised and awarded in this campaign will be included in the usual monthly disbursement process.
There will be $250,000 in matching funds during the campaign (UPDATE: GlobalGiving increased matching funds from $130,000 to $250,000 on 7/2/19).
Donations will be matched based on amount:
Donations $100 - $499 USD will be matched at 15%
Donations of $500 - $749 USD will be matched at 30%
Donations of $750 - $1,000 USD will be matched at 50%
Donations under $100 USD will not be matched
Donation above $1,000 USD will be matched on the first $1,000 at 50%.
The match offer is restricted to donations made by unique donors per organization. For example, an individual can give $1,000 to one participating project and get matched at 50%, however, if that same individual gave three separate $1,000 gifts to three projects run by one organization, only their first gift would be matched at 50%.
In order to benefit as many partners as possible, organizations will be capped at $5,000 in matching funds.
Unique donors are determined using numerous criteria, including 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 distinct donors are counted.
Donations will be matched based on the order in which they are received. We encourage you to get donations in early because matching funds will likely run out before the end of the day.
The 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.
Please note that GlobalGiving will monitor and review all donations made through this matching offer.
GlobalGiving reserves the right to make final decisions on all matters concerning the allocation of matching funds.
New Monthly Giving Match:
New monthly donations up to $200 per donor per project started during this bonus day will get an additional 100% match on their initial donation as long as it remains active for a minimum of four payments.
This **100% Monthly Match **offer will remain active while one-time matching remains, after it’s exhausted, and for every day in 2019.
Please note, monthly donations started by project leaders or staff of the recipient project or organization are not eligible for the 100% Monthly Match.
There will be $10,000 in bonus prizes based on the number of unique donors you have in each giving range.
Most funds raised: $5,000
Most $100+ donors: $5,000
Projects must have at least 10 unique donors on the leaderboard to be eligible for bonus prizes.
Organizations can only win one bonus prize. We recommend selecting one prize to aim for and one project to promote on bonus day.
Donation Eligibility: 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 total raised during the July 18th Bonus Day. Donations must be made by the account or credit card holder.
The following forms of donations are ineligible to receive matching funds during the campaign: Cash, check, corporate gift card redemptions, CAF check, CAF Online, wire transfers, text-to-give donations, donations made via 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%; for organizations outside the US and UK, it is 7%. During the July 18th Bonus Day, the fee only applies to the initial donation and not to bonus prizes or matching funds earned. 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.
