The GlobalGiving Girl Fund Bonus Day runs from 9am ET to 11:59pm ET on International Women’s Day, Friday, March 8, 2019. This campaign is exclusively for projects participating in the GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign.
There is $10,000 USD in matching funds available and $2,600 in bonus prizes available.
GlobalGiving will match donations at 30% up to $250 USD per individual donor per project while funds last or until the Bonus Day ends. For example: a donation of $250 USD will receive a $75 USD match.
Bonus Prizes: At the end of the day, the top 10 projects with the most funds raised will receive bonus prizes of $800, $600, $400, $200, six prizes of $100.
In the event that there is a tie for one of the top funds raised prizes, the project with the most unique donors during the campaign will get priority.
Only donations up to $250 USD per unique donor per project will be matched. Unique donors are determined using numerous criteria, including name, email address, credit card number, mailing address, and IP address. If a donor gives prior to bonus day and on bonus day they will count as a unique donor on both leaderboards.
Unique donors for the bonus day will be matched while funds last, however, they will only count once as a unique donor for the whole Girl Fund Campaign.
Eligible Bonus Day Donations: Debit card, credit card, PayPal, Apple Pay, and individually purchased gift cards equivalent to $10 USD or greater, and mobile donations through M-Changa equivalent to $5 USD or greater.. Online donations made using PayPal, Apple Pay, or credit card must be made by the account or credit card holder.
Ineligible Bonus Day Donations: Checks, wire transfers, cash, text-to-give, CAF check, CAF online, donations made by JustGiving, corporate gift card redemptions, and donations made on any other GlobalGiving corporate or organizational giving sites, or organizational-level giving.
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.
GlobalGiving maintains the right to make a final decision on all matters concerning the allocation of matching funds and bonus prizes.
Matching funds and bonus prizes will be disbursed in the usual monthly disbursement cycle.
Tax Efficient Giving & Fees
Tax Efficiency: GlobalGiving is a registered nonprofit charity in the United States and England and Wales. Donations made by eligible donors in the United States can be claimed as tax deductible contributions on United States tax returns. Donations made by eligible donors in the United Kingdom can claim Gift Aid (an extra 25% added to eligible donations by the UK Government) when they donate in GBP.
Fulfillment Fee: GlobalGiving charges a minimal nonprofit support fee plus a 3% processing fee. For US and UK registered organizations the nonprofit support fee is 5%. Organizations outside the US and UK will be charged a 7% nonprofit support fee. During the Year-End Campaign, the fee only applies to the initial donation and not to prize funds earned. The fee helps cover the costs we incur to promote your organization and projects, to provide you with fundraising training and tools, and to maintain and improve our online technology in order to keep you connecting with new donors. The fee does not apply to matching funds or bonus prizes.
