Gear Up For GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign

Gear Up For GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign

WHAT: Join GlobalGiving for our 2019 Year-End Campaign during the biggest fundraising month of the year! Following #GivingTuesday, GlobalGiving is offering prizes galore to celebrate you, our partners, and help drive more funds towards your important work. This year we have bonus prizes totaling $12,000 for top crowdfunding projects and much more! 

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. Recognizing that the holiday season is in full swing, it makes sense for donors to participate in a time of generosity, and utilize 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 specifically for GlobalGiving’s active Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations. Active projects and microprojects will be automatically included. The deadline to submit new projects, project edits, project appeals, and project reports is 17:00:00 ET on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2019.

WHEN + WHERE: GlobalGiving’s 2019 Year-End Campaign will begin at 00:00:00 ET on Wednesday Dec. 4, 2019, and end at 23:59:59 ET on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2019. Prizes will be displayed on the Year-End Campaign leaderboard.

July Bonus Day: Higher the donation, higher the match!

July Bonus Day: Higher the donation, higher the match!

WHAT: The July Bonus Day is a day to celebrate and bump up your BIG donors! Donations starting at $100 and up to $1,000 will be matched while $250,000 (UPDATED: 7/2/19) in matching funds remain. The higher the donation, the higher the match! There will be two $5,000 prizes. One for the project with the most $100+ donors and another for the project with the most funds raised.

WHY: Small-dollar donors are essential to building power and achieving organizational stability. With proper identification and cultivation, small-dollar donors can become large-dollar donors.

This campaign is designed to celebrate the donors who keep the lights on and the momentous accomplishments their generosity makes possible!

WHO: All GlobalGiving Partners, Leaders, and Superstars are invited to participate and we’ll automatically include your active projects and microprojects. Whether you’re ready to participate depends on where your organization is at in the Identification + Discovery phase of major gift cultivation!
