Matching campaign begins at Midnight!

Posted by Alexis Nadin on October 11th, 2010

Don’t forget the Give More-Get More Matching Campaign begins on October 12 at midnight EDT! The rules and details of the campaign can be found on the Tools & Training Blog here: http://tools.blog.globalgiving.org/2010/09/24/give-more-get-more-october-matching-campaign-details/.

You can follow the campaign using the Give More-Get More leaderboard: http://www.globalgiving.org/leaderboards/givemore-getmore. You will be able to track the number of donations received and the matching amount on your project pages beginning at midnight.

Remember, there is $100,000 available in matching funds and donations on GlobalGiving.org will be matched up to $2,500 per donor per project until the funds run out in graduated percentages:

$10 – $499   –>  30% match

$500 – $999  –>  40% match

$1,000 – $2,500   — >  50% match

Some tips to make the most of the matching campaign:

  • Tell your supporters to take advantage of the opportunity – send a project report, email your own donor list, and post the opportunity on Twitter and Facebook.
  • Personally reach out to your major donors by phone or email – remember, GlobalGiving is matching donations up to $2,500!
  • Make sure your board members and staff know about the challenge so they can help spread the word as well.
  • Motivate your donors by the urgency of the campaign – remember there is only $100,000 available in matching funds!

Below is a sample email you can send to your suporters to let them know about the campaign.
