GlobalGiving offers a year-round match on new monthly donations. The purpose of this matching offer is to encourage more donors to sign up for ongoing monthly giving, which provides nonprofit partners with a solid ground to stand on and a sustainable source of funds that they can use to plan programs, create budgets, and expand services.
Donors who set up a new monthly donation to a project will have their first donation up to $200 matched at 100%! For example, set up a new $25 monthly donation, and we'll donate an additional $25 to the project one time.
How does the Year-Round Monthly Match work?
New monthly donations
(up to $200 per unique donor)
will have their first donation matched at 100% after four (4) total payments
All active projects and microprojects are eligible for this offer. Please note that GlobalGiving cannot extend the 90-day time period for microprojects, so when a microproject expires, monthly donors to it will be asked to transfer their donation to another project.
Frequently Asked Questions
Which donation(s) in the monthly series will be matched?
The match is applied to the amount of the FIRST donation made when setting up a new monthly donation. The monthly donation must last for at least three months after the initial donation (for a total of four payments) in order to be matched.
Does this offer apply to existing monthly donations?
No. This offer matches NEW monthly donations to a project. If a donor cancels their monthly donation and makes a new monthly donation to the same project, they will not be eligible for additional matching.
What happens if a donor sets up a new monthly donation of more than $200?
Monthly donations of an amount greater than $200 will receive the maximum $200 match to the project after four months.
What happens if a donor cancels their monthly donation before their fourth donation?
Monthly donations that are canceled after the initial donation but before the third automatic recurring donation will not receive the matching offer.
Can a project leader or staff member set up a monthly donation to their own project?
Monthly donations made by project leaders or staff of the recipient project or organization are NOT eligible for matching. Donations from board members, however, ARE eligible for matching.
Which projects are eligible for this matching offer?
All active projects for Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations are eligible to receive this 100% matching offer!
When will my organization receive the matching funds earned from this offer?
New monthly donations must stay active for four months to receive the 100% match on the initial donation. So, for example, if a donor starts a monthly donation of $20 on March 15, their monthly donation must continue through April, May, and June, and your organization will receive the additional $20 match in June.
