Leaderboards

Track your organization's progress in the Accelerator through our leaderboards! The Main Leaderboard will capture fundraising activity from the beginning to end of the campaign, showcase your progress towards the goal of raising $5,000 from 40 donors, and display bonus prize placement and rank. The #GivingTuesday and Bonus Day Leaderboards capture two 24-hour opportunities to win additional prizes during the Accelerator.

Tell us about your organization and your experience with online fundraising in the pre-Accelerator survey.
Meet your fellow participants on Facebook!

Organizations that raise over $5,000 from at least 40 donors during the Giving Season Accelerator Crowdfunding Campaign will earn:

  1. Permanent membership in the GlobalGiving community
  2. Inclusion in a GlobalGiving press release
  3. A custom media kit to help promote your accomplishment
  4. A certificate of completion from GlobalGiving
  5. Additional promotion opportunities, including through GlobalGiving’s social media, content contributions, and homepage features for top performers
