Are YOU a Record Breaker?

Are YOU a Record Breaker?

GlobalGiving challenges everyone to be a Record Breaker in 2018! This year we’re announcing three all-time records and offering a prize package of $1,000 and social media promotion to the first five Record Breakers.  

Here are the three records to beat:

Most Dollars Raised by a Project in a Single Day Campaign: $55,397

This record is held by Alive Medical Services in Uganda and was set on November 28, 2017 during the #GivingTuesday Matching Campaign.

Most Donors Organized by a Project in a Single Day Campaign: 441

This record is held by Fundacion Madre Maria Luisa Casa in Venezuela and was set on November 28, 2017 on #GivingTuesday Matching Campaign.

Most Dollars Raised by a New Partner: $62,833

This record is held by Autismo en Voz Alta in Venezuela and we set during the June 2015 campaign for new partners to join GlobalGiving.

If you’re aiming be beat a record, please note that records can only be beaten during specified campaigns in 2018 (see the list in the Terms + Conditions below). Participants in the 2018 Girl Fund Bonus Day and March Accelerator will be first up to bat!  

For the sake of transparency, GlobalGiving will only consider totals captured on a designated campaign leaderboard towards breaking one of these records. Please keep in mind that every campaign has a unique set of Terms + Conditions detailing who is eligible and what type of donations will count.

Excited to celebrate the first five record breakers of 2018!
