All associated active projects and microprojects will be automatically included, so you don't need to do anything to register! The deadline to submit a project for inclusion in this campaign is Tuesday, November 24 at 5:00 PM ET.

How will the Incentive Funds be distributed?
The $1 million Incentive Fund will be distributed proportionally based on final fundraising totals. Every project that activates donors will earn something, and the projects that bring in the most dollars will win the largest portion of the Incentive Fund.

Allocation of the million dollar Incentive Fund will be displayed on the Leaderboard and will recalculate every three minutes until the campaign ends.
