September 2019 Accelerator Bonus Day Terms + Conditions
The September 2019 Accelerator Bonus Day will be from 00:00:00 ET to 23:59:59 ET on Wednesday, September 18, 2019.
Only organizations participating in GlobalGiving’s September 2019 Accelerator are eligible to participate in this Accelerator Bonus Day.
Incentive Funds: On Bonus Day, Accelerator participants will compete for a share of a $20,000 Incentive Fund. The Incentive Fund will be distributed to participants proportionally based on final fundraising totals during the day. This means that, at the end of Bonus Day, the projects that bring in the most dollars will win the largest slice of the Incentive Fund and every project that activates donors will earn something.
Each participants’ portion of the Incentive Fund is determined as follows: [Total Project Donations on Bonus Day] ÷ [Total Donations To All Projects on Bonus Day] * [$20,000] ≈ Your portion of the 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 23:59:59 ET on September 18, 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.
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. Additionally, new recurring donations up to $200 per donor per project will have their initial donation matched at 100% after the fourth donation. See the “Recurring Donations” section of the main Accelerator Terms + Conditions for complete details.
GlobalGiving reserves the right to make final decisions on all matters concerning the allocation of cash 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.
