Only donations made by unique donors per project will be matched. Unique donors are determined using numerous criteria, including name, email address, credit card number, mailing address, and IP address. We are monitoring these and other parameters in our system to ensure that only unique, distinct donors are counted.
Only online donations made by credit card, PayPal, or a GlobalGiving official gift card are eligible for matching. Donations made by check or text-to-give are not eligible.
We encourage you to get donations in early because matching funds may run out quickly.
Please note that GlobalGiving will monitor and review all donations made through this matching offer.
Online donations made using PayPal or credit card must be made by the credit card holder or PayPal account holder.
GlobalGiving maintains the right to make a final decision on all matters concerning the allocation of matching funds.
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 is a registered nonprofit in the United States. Donations made on globalgiving.org can only be claimed as a tax deductible contribution on United States tax returns.
GlobalGiving charges a 15% fulfillment fee on donations but works to keep the fees you pay as low as possible while providing you great services and resources. During the Japan Matching Campaign the fulfillment fee only applies to the initial donation. The fulfillment fee does not apply to the match. For example, if an organization receives $1,000 in donations eligible for matching, that organization will receive $1000 + $1000 - $1000*15% = $1850.The fee covers all transactional charges such as credit card fees, as well as helps cover the costs we incur to promote organizations and projects, provide them with fundraising training and tools, and maintain and improve our online technology in order to keep you connecting with new donors. With our add-on option, we also offer the donor the opportunity to make an additional donation to cover the fee.
