START: The 100% Matching Campaign will start on 8th January 2015 at 2pm GMT (9am EST).
END: The campaign will close once the funds are used up, or on 6th March 2015 at 2pm GMT (9am EST) if the funds have not been used to that time. Beware that matching funds might be used up before the official end of the campaign.
MATCHING FUNDS: There is £16,000 of available matching funding. Any value of donation will be matched at 100% whilst match funds remain. Matching is applied until the match funds are used up.
DONATION OPTIONS: All online donations received through the GlobalGiving.co.uk and GlobalGiving.org will be eligible for the 100% matching funds. Online donations (credit card, debit card, PayPal, and CAF online) are eligible for matching. Recurring donations made online are also eligible for matching. Donations made by text, or via JustGiving are NOT eligible. Donations made on any corporate sites or other partnerships are NOT eligible. Donations made by cheque will be eligible only if the cheques are cleared whilst the matching funds remains.
Are donations made via GlobalGiving.org available for matching? Yes, donations made on GlobalGiving.org and GlobalGiving.co.uk to the eligible project will be eligible to receive 100% match whilst match funds remain.
Is there a maximum amount that can be matched?No, any value of donation will be matched whilst the match funding remains. If the donation made cannot be fully matched at 100%, the donation will be partially matched until funds are used.
Can UK tax payers claim Gift Aid on top of their donations? Yes. We strongly encourage you to ask your UK supporters to add Gift Aid on top of their donation (this means about 25% on top of their donation to your project!). Once the Gift Aid contribution is received from HM Revenue and Customs, we will transfer the amount to the organisation to be used for the specific project that donations were made for. Gift Aid will not be matched in this campaign.
What happens if the matching funds run out before the end date? If the matching funds run out before that time, we will add the donation to the Haiti Hospital Appeal project, but this donation will not be matched.
