March 2018

Welcome to the GlobalGiving Accelerator Hub! The go-to spot for March Accelerator participants.


Track your organization's progress in the Accelerator through our leaderboards! The Main Leaderboard will capture participant activity from March 12th through March 30th, showcase your progress towards the goal of raising $5,000 from 40 donors, and display bonus prize placement and rank. The Bonus Day Leaderboard will be live from 00:00:01 to 23:59:59 EDT on Wednesday, March 21st, and will track how much of the $10,000 in Incentive Fund your organization secures on that day.
