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.
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.
In your GlobalGiving donation manager, donations that count towards your total raised during the Back Black campaign (based on the time the donation was made and the method of payment) will be marked with a plus sign.
GlobalGiving reserves the right to make final decisions on all matters concerning the allocation of the Matching Fund.
