Campaign Details

To help our nonprofit partners grow their monthly support base during the year-end fundraising season, GlobalGiving is offering a 200% match on all new monthly donations set up between December 14 at 00:00:00 ET and December 18 at 23:59:59 ET. (Watch the 10-minute explainer video)

The match applies to the first installment in the monthly series. In order to be matched, eligible monthly donations must be active for four total payments. After those four months, the matching funds will be sent in the April 2021 disbursement.

Organization & Project Eligibility

All active Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations are eligible to participate in the December 2020 Monthly Donor Drive. Active projects and Microprojects will be automatically included.

While Microprojects will be included in the offer, GlobalGiving cannot extend the 90-day time period. When a microproject expires, monthly donors to it will be asked to transfer their donation to another project.

Dates & Deadlines

GlobalGiving’s December 2020 Monthly Donor Drive will last 5 days, from December 14, 2020, at 00:00:00 EST to December 18, 2020, at 23:59:59 EST.

The deadline for submitting new projects, project edits, project reports, and project appeals to be approved in time for inclusion in the December 2020 Monthly Donor Drive was December 9, 2020, at 17:00:00 EST. For microprojects, check the expiration date as GlobalGiving cannot extend the 90-day time period.

Please allow for 2-3 business days for GlobalGiving to approve project reports, project appeals, and project edits related to the campaign. GlobalGiving cannot guarantee that late submissions will be reviewed in time for inclusion in the campaign.

Funds awarded through this offer will be disbursed in the usual monthly disbursement process for the month after which the fourth donation is received.

Matching Funds

During the December 2020 Monthly Donor Drive, donations from donors setting up a new monthly donation will be matched one-time at 200% after four total payments.


  • The monthly donation must last for at least three months after the initial donation (a minimum of four donations total) to qualify for the match.
  • The match is only applied to the amount of the first donation. For example, if a donor starts a new recurring donation in December and keeps it active through January, February, and March, then their donation amount from December will be matched in March.
  • This offer is limited to matching a donor's first time donating monthly to a particular project. If a donor cancels their monthly donation and makes a new monthly donation to the same project, they are not eligible for additional matching.
  • Monthly donations made by project leaders or staff of the recipient project or organization are not eligible for matching. Donations from board members, however, are eligible for matching.


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.

GlobalGiving reserves the right to make final decisions on all matters concerning the allocation of the Matching Fund.

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 December 2020 Monthly Donor Drive:

  • Credit or debit card
  • Paypal

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 December 2020 Monthly Donor Drive. Ineligible donation methods include, but are not limited to: individually purchased GlobalGiving Gift Cards, corporate gift cards, physical checks, M-Changa/M-Pesa, 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 December 2020 Monthly Donor Drive, 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.
