2020 July Bonus Day

Terms + Conditions

Dates + Eligibility

  • GlobalGiving’s July Bonus Day runs from 09:00:00 a.m. ET to 23:59:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, or until matching funds run out.
  • This Bonus Day is designed to celebrate your higher-dollar donors and help GlobalGiving partners move smaller-dollar donors up to new giving heights. Accordingly, only donations of $100 USD and up will count on Bonus Day and, the higher the donation, the higher the match!
  • Eligibility: All Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations, with the exception of Indian-banked organizations, are eligible to participate in this campaign. All associated active projects and microprojects will be automatically included on the leaderboard (no opt-in required). For microprojects, check the expiration date as GlobalGiving cannot extend the 90-day time period.
  • Submission deadline: The deadline for submitting new projects, project edits, project reports, and project appeals to be approved in time for inclusion in this Bonus Day is Friday, July 10 at 5 p.m. ET.
  • Disbursement of funds raised and awarded in this campaign will be included in the usual monthly disbursement process.

Matching Funds

  • There will be $250,000 USD in matching funds during the campaign.
  • Donations will be matched based on amount:
    • Donations of $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%
  • In order to benefit as many partners as possible, organizations will be capped at $3,000 USD in matching funds.
  • Donations under $100 USD will not be matched and will not appear on the leaderboard as funds raised.
  • Donations 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, if an individual gave three separate $1,000 gifts to three projects run by the same organization on Bonus Day, only their first gift would be matched at 50%.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The leaderboard will display the remaining matching funds.
  • 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.

Monthly Giving Match:

  • New monthly donations up to $200 USD 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 2020.
  • Download the accompanying graphics!
  • Please note, monthly donations started by project leaders or staff of the recipient project or organization are not eligible for the 100% Monthly Match.

Bonus Prizes

  • There will be $30,000 USD in bonus prizes for the top 5 projects with the most funds raised: $10,000, $8,000, $6,000, $4,000, $2,000
  • Projects must have at least 5 unique donations of $100 USD or more 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

  • Donation Amount: As this campaign is geared toward higher-dollar fundraising, only donations of $100 USD and higher will count on the July Bonus Day leaderboard.
  • Donation Method: 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 Bonus Day. Donations must be made by the account or credit card holder.
  • Ineligible Donation Methods: 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 15th 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.
