On 10th March 2015, GlobalGiving will commemorate the anniversary of the disaster in the Tohoku region of Japan by offering all qualifying projects 100% match on eligible donations. Like the past 3 years, this match campaign is to support recovery efforts.
The Japan Match Campaign is running concurrently on the GlobalGiving.org and GlobalGiving.co.uk websites. This is a fantastic opportunity for all eligible partners to gain additional funding, gain more exposure, and offer UK & US supporters a direct and relevant way to give to qualifying projects whilst also gaining country-specific tax benefits.
Whilst the US & UK campaigns will start at the same time, please note that there are different match funding pots available, different leaderboards (found on the GlobalGiving.org and GlobalGiving.co.uk websites respectively), and different terms and conditions.
To make things a bit simpler, we have created a quick comparison table of the two campaigns to help with your campaign planning and communications.
For full terms and conditions for the GlobalGiving.co.uk campaign or the GlobalGiving.org campaign, please see the leaderboard links above.
