Everything You Need To Know About GlobalGiving’s Powerful Year-End Campaign

Everything You Need To Know About GlobalGiving’s Powerful Year-End Campaign

WHAT: GlobalGiving’s 2018 Year-End Campaign is designed to help you build on your #GivingTuesday momentum and exceed your ambitious (and possible!) fundraising goals. The first 10 projects to get 50 donors in this campaign will win a $100 bonus prize, the overall top 10 projects will win bonus prizes starting at $2,000, and new recurring donors will surely be celebrated!

WHY: With approximately 31% of all annual giving occurring in December, the end of the year is the most crucial time for almost every nonprofit organization. For donors, this makes sense because it’s the holiday season, a time of generosity and giving back, as well as the last opportunity to make tax-deductible donations count for this calendar year. For nonprofits, the end of the year is a natural moment to share reflections on the year, broadcast major accomplishments and perhaps major hurdles that still remain, and announce big ideas to fundraise for in the new year.

WHO: The Year-End Campaign is exclusively for GlobalGiving partners and your growing network supporters! Active projects and microprojects will be automatically included. The deadline to submit new projects for inclusion in the Year-End Campaign is Tuesday, Nov. 20

Throughout the campaign, approvals of project reports, project edits, and project appeals will take 1-3 business days to process. We kindly ask that you allow GlobalGiving the maximum time to to put your team and ours in a good position to succeed during the busiest season of the year.

WHEN + WHERE: GlobalGiving’s 2018 Year-End Campaign begins at 00:00:00 ET on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018, and ends at 23:59:59 ET on Monday, Dec. 31, 2018. Fundraising totals and bonus prizes will be displayed on the Year-End Campaign leaderboard.
