The 2019 GlobalGiving Climate Fund Bonus Day runs from 9:00am ET to 11:59pm ET on Earth Day, Monday, April 22, 2019.
The 2019 Climate Fund Campaign is centered around Earth Day and only participants in that campaign are eligible to participate.
There will be $40,000 in matching funds and $10,000 in bonus prizes to compete for on Earth Day.
GlobalGiving maintains the right to make a final decision on all matters concerning the allocation of matching funds and bonus prizes.
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.
Matching funds and bonus prizes will be disbursed in the usual monthly disbursement cycle.
There will be $40,000 in matching funds for all participants to compete for on Earth Day.
Eligible donations will be matched at 50% up to $500 USD per individual donor per organization while funds and time remain.
For example: a donation of $100 USD will receive a $50 USD match and a donation of $1,000 USD will receive a $250 USD match.
To ensure all participants have a fair chance to compete, organizations will be capped at $3,000 in matching funds.
Donations will be matched based on the order in which they are received.
The leaderboard will display the remaining matching funds. We encourage you to get donations in early because matching funds may run out quickly.
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.
There will be $10,000 in bonus prizes to compete for on Earth Day.
At the end of the day, the top 20 projects with the most funds raised will receive bonus prizes of $3K, $2K, $1K, $800, $700, $600, $400, $300, and twelve prizes of $100.
Projects must raise at least $1,000 to be bonus prize eligible.
In the event that there is a tie for one of the top funds raised prizes, the project with the most unique donors during the campaign will get priority.
New Monthly Donor Match
New monthly donations up to $200 per donor per project will get an additional 100% match on their initial donation as long as it remains active for a minimum of four payments.
Please note, monthly donations started by project leaders or staff of the recipient project or organization are not eligible for the 100% Monthly Match.
Donation Eligibility + Disbursement
Unique donors are determined using numerous criteria, including name, email address, credit card number, mailing address, and IP address. If a donor gives prior to bonus day and on bonus day they will count as a unique donor on both leaderboards.
Unique donors for the Bonus Day will be matched while funds last, however, they will only count once as a unique donor for the larger Climate Fund Campaign.
Eligible Bonus Day Donations: Debit card, credit card, PayPal, Apple Pay, individually purchased gift cards, and mobile donations through M-Changa. Online donations must be made by the account or credit card holder.
Ineligible Bonus Day Donations: Checks, wire transfers, cash, text-to-give, CAF check, CAF online, donations made by JustGiving, corporate gift card redemptions, and donations made on any other GlobalGiving corporate or organizational giving sites, or organizational-level giving.
Tax Efficient Giving & Fees
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%. Organizations outside the US and UK will be charged a 7% nonprofit support fee. During this Bonus Day, the fee only applies to the initial donation and not to prize 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. The fee does not apply to matching funds or bonus prizes.
