Only organizations participating in GlobalGiving’s 2018 September Accelerator are eligible to participate in this Accelerator Bonus Day.
Incentive Funds: On Bonus Day, Accelerator participants will compete for a share of a $10,000 Incentive Fund.
The Incentive Fund will be proportionally divided between organizations that activate during the day. That means, if your project raises 5% of the total amount of money raised on Bonus Day, your organization will receive 5%, or $500, of the $10,000 Incentive Fund.
Throughout the day, your portion of the Incentive Fund will be displayed and fluctuate on the Bonus Day Leaderboard. The leaderboard will recalculate every 3 minutes. At midnight EDT on September 19th, prizes will be locked.
Only online donations up to $5,000 per donor per project will count towards earning a portion of the Incentive Fund.
GlobalGiving will indicate in your donation manager which donations count towards your total raised on Bonus Day based on the time of the donation, the method of payment, and the unique donor criteria.
Bonus Day Cash Prizes:
Most Funds Raised: $500
Most Unique Donors: $500
GlobalGiving reserves the right to make final decisions on all matters concerning the allocation of cash prizes.
Offline donations that come in on Bonus Day will count on the Main Accelerator Leaderboard, but will not be reflected on the Accelerator Bonus Day Leaderboard or count towards Bonus Day prizes.
Prize money (incentive funds and bonus prizes) does not count towards the $5,000 and 40 donor thresholds.
Recurring Donations: On Bonus Day, any new, unique recurring donors secured will count as two unique donors towards the Most Unique Donor prize as well as towards the project's overall donor count in the Accelerator. Read complete information about the recurring double count and match in the main Accelerator Terms + Conditions.
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.
Funds raised through eligible partner platforms during the September Accelerator Bonus Day will not count towards Bonus Day prizes (incentive fund and bonus prizes) but will count towards the Accelerator threshold. Terms and Conditions apply.
Information in the main Accelerator Terms + Conditions on tax-efficient giving, fees, exchange rates, disbursements, disqualification, unique donors, and vetting applies to the Accelerator Bonus Day.
