Campaign Details

The 2021 Climate Action Campaign is a five-day matching campaign designed exclusively for GlobalGiving partners responding to climate change in ways that are as diverse as the problem is complex.

The campaign will be limited to 200 organizations and GlobalGiving will prioritize entry for organizations with a record of climate programming. GlobalGiving maintains final authority to determine campaign inclusion.

GlobalGiving will notify all applicants by Tuesday, March 23, of their application status. If rejected, resubmissions will not be considered.

Organization & Project Eligibility

The Climate Action Campaign is exclusively for GlobalGiving Partners, Leaders, and Superstars who have applied and were accepted to participate in this campaign. Only one project per organization is eligible to participate.

Disbursement of funds raised and awarded in this campaign will be included in the usual monthly disbursement process.

Matching Funds

During the 2021 Climate Action Campaign, all eligible donations up to $100 USD per unique donor per organization will be matched at 100% for the duration of the campaign.


  • Donations above $100 USD will be matched on the first $100 USD. The match offer is restricted to donations made by unique donors per organization.
  • Each organization can receive a maximum of $2,000 USD in total Matching Funds to benefit as many partners as possible.


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 2021 Climate Action Campaign 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.

Monthly Giving Match

GlobalGiving’s 100% Monthly Match is also available to the GlobalGiving nonprofit community for all of 2021. New monthly donations set up during the 2021 Climate Action Campaign will be eligible for both the immediate match outlined by these terms, and the one-time 100% match (up to $200) to be received after four monthly payments!

Donation Methods & Eligibility

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.

Eligible Donations

Donations made to a project using any of the following methods will count towards your total raised during the 2021 Climate Action Campaign:

Donations must be made by the account or credit card holder.

Ineligible Donations

Donations received via any other methods will not count towards your total raised during the 2021 Climate Action Campaign. Ineligible donation methods include, but are not limited to: corporate gift cards, physical checks, cash donations, wire transfers, CAF checks and CAF Online, donations made on a GlobalGiving corporate or organizational giving site, and donations made directly to an organization rather than a project

Tax Efficient Giving

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 2021 Climate Action Campaign, 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.
