In the past 5 years, millions of refugees have been displaced after fleeing from their homes. GlobalGiving is supporting our nonprofit partners who are responding to the crisis with our Syrian Refugee Relief Fund. Beginning July 12th, 2016 at 9:00 am EDT (2:00 pm BST), GlobalGiving will be matching donations at 50% and providing bonus prizes for projects focused on providing relief and support to the refugees.
GlobalGiving is committed to supporting our nonprofit partners invested in these communities and committed to long-lasting relief. Our nonprofit partners have a variety of missions from emergency aid to providing health and social care for refugees. The matching campaign gives organizations additional resources to support more refugees on the ground.
GlobalGiving.org and GlobalGiving.co.uk will be matching donations during the campaign through separate funds with separate bonus prizes. Both matching campaigns will end on August 16th, 2016 at 9:00 am EDT (2:00 pm BST).
Be sure to watch the Syrian Refugee Relief Matching Campaign Webinar to learn more about the Terms and Conditions, hear about the different resources to help you prepare for the campaign, and find out about fundraising strategies to get the word out to your donors. You can also find the full Terms and Conditions as well as track donations on GlobalGiving.org’s leaderboard here and GlobalGiving UK’s leaderboard here. Remember to communicate with your donors ahead of time so they fully understand how they can make their donation count!
