Make Your Gift Mean 30% More on March 13

Thank you so much for supporting our bonobo conservation efforts through GlobalGiving. With your help, we are changing lives—human and bonobo alike—in the Congo rainforest. Thanks to caring people like you, bright Congolese students have educational opportunities, Kokolopori Bonobo Reserve residents receive lifesaving medical care, and trackers and eco-guards can feed their families--earning their income not from hunting bonobos, but from protecting them. Right now, a baby bonobo is being born in Kokolopori, or Sankuru, or Lilungu, and she has a brighter future because you took the time to reach out and lend a hand.

Now you can make your gift go 30% further. On Wednesday, March 13, starting at 9AM EDT, GlobalGiving will match donations at 30% up to $1,000 per donor per project! There is $50,000 available in matching funds and matching will last until funds run out or 11:59 pm EDT.

Think about what 30% can do. If you give $100, you can pay an eco-guard’s salary for two months. The extra $30 can provide essential equipment, like binoculars and headlamps. Every dollar helps, and on March 13, it helps 30% more.

 You make our work possible. On behalf of the bonobos, thank you.

The terms of GlobalGiving's matching program are such that the match only goes into effect after the recurring donation has been active for three months. We are just reaching the end of this window now, so we haven't seen the matching donations yet. We... Read more »
