Ebola 100% Matching Campaign

Ebola 100% Matching Campaign

On April 1st at 00:00:01 EDT (see what time this is in your city) GlobalGiving.org and GlobalGiving.co.uk will match eligible donations 100% while funds last for Ebola focused projects. There will be $100,000 USD in matching funds on GlobalGiving.org and £15,000 of matching funds on GlobalGiving.co.uk.

The fight to eliminate Ebola and rebuild after the crisis is long from over. After reaching zero cases of Ebola, Liberia recently announced a new case in the country. Sierra Leone continues to fight the outbreak, with the president recently announcing a three-day lock-down for the country. Guinea struggles with civil unrest while the number of cases is increasing.

We invite organizations, who are working on Ebola related efforts, to participate in the match campaign.

The Ebola 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 your UK & US supporters a direct and relevant way to give to your project while also gaining country-specific tax benefits. If your projects are not currently on both GlobalGiving US and GlobalGiving UK, now is the perfect time to cross post!

  • If your project is currently listed on globalgiving.org and you would like to cross post your project to GlobalGiving UK‘s site, let us know here.
  • If your project is currently listed on globalgiving.co.uk and you would like to cross post your project to globalgiving.org, let us know here.

The US & UK campaigns will start at the same time, however 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.  The full terms and conditions for each campaign are included below.
