GlobalGiving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund Matching Campaign is possible thanks to a generous $100,000 gift from an anonymous donor.
The matching campaign will run from 9 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, to midnight EDT on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, or until matching funds run out.
The campaign is being held in observance of #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving organized as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
All online donations to GlobalGiving’sCoronavirus Relief Fundup to $10,000 USD will be matched at 100% while funds remain. Donations greater than $10,000 will be matched at a maximum of $10,000 while funds remain. The matching funds are available exclusively to the Fund and are not available for other COVID-19-focused projects on GlobalGiving.
GlobalGiving’s100% Monthly Matchis also available to donors who set up new monthly recurring donations to the Coronavirus Relief Fund. New monthly donations set up during this campaign will be eligible for both matches: the immediate 100% #GivingTuesdayNow match (up to $10,000 USD) and, as long as the donation remains active for a minimum of four payments, the 100% monthly match (up to $200).
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.
Please note that donations to the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign are final. GlobalGiving cannot change the time, date, or status of a donation after it is processed for any reason.
