Build Your Monthly Giving Program With This 100% Monthly Match Offer

Build Your Monthly Giving Program With This 100% Monthly Match Offer

Authored By: Katherine Heidecke

Want to build your monthly giving program? Trying to incentivize donors to give on a more consistent basis? Look no further! GlobalGiving’s 100% Monthly Match on new recurring donations is a great opportunity for your organization to amplify its membership base, while also securing more consistent funding. 

From now until December 31, 2019, all new monthly recurring donations made will be matched 1-to-1 to up $200 per donor per organization while funds last. Please note that this match is only applied to the first donation.

With this match, starting a monthly giving program just became that much easier! At GlobalGiving, we believe that monthly giving programs are a great way to build a strong foundation of diverse donors. This is just one of the many reasons why starting a monthly giving program and encouraging your donors to take part in our 100% Monthly Match could transform your organization. When you build a strong donor base, you’re leading your organization towards the forefront of sustainable funding. 

How To Get Started:

  • Send out an appeal: Thanks to GlobalGiving project appeals, informing your donors about this new matching opportunity is simple! As of this year, there’s no limit to how many project appeals you can send and now you can segment your appeals to get your message to the right audience!
  • Post on social media using our eye-catching graphics: We’ll make it easy for you. We provide the graphics – you make the post!
  • Talk about it at your next event: Sometimes the best way to engage your donors and inform them of new opportunities is through face-to-face interaction!
  • Link your project URL to recurring donation options: When promoting this match offer, link to your project using a URL that defaults to displaying monthly donations. You can do this by adding “?show=recurring” to the end of your project URL or go to the “SHARE” tab on your project page to find your unique monthly donation URL. This nifty trick prevents those trying to give monthly from accidentally making a one-time donation!

Terms & Conditions:

  • An anonymous donor has generously provided $150,000 in matching funds for new recurring donations on GlobalGiving. This matching offer is valid from January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019 at 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern, or while funds last.
  • The purpose of this matching offer is to get more donors to sign up for recurring monthly giving. Why is this important? Monthly recurring gifts provide the projects on our site with a reliable and sustainable source of funds that they can use to plan programs, create budgets, and expand services. And that means more good happening on the ground!
  • New recurring donations created on GlobalGiving.org during this campaign will be matched 1-to-1 up to $200 per donor per organization while funds last. Eligible recurring donations of $201 or larger will be matched at $200, meaning a $200 recurring donation will get a $200 match.
  • To be eligible for matching, the recurring donation must last for at least three months after the initial donation (a minimum of four donations total). For example, if you start a new recurring donation in November and keep it active through December, January, and February, then your initial donation from November will be matched.
  • Recurring donations that are canceled after the initial donation but before the third automatic recurring donation are not eligible for matching.
  • Recurring donations made by project leaders or staff of the recipient project or organization are not eligible for matching. Donations from board members, however, are eligible for matching.
  • If you change the project that you are supporting, GlobalGiving will direct the match to the project selected when the third automatic recurring donation occurs.
  • Only recurring donations created on GlobalGiving.org are eligible for this matching offer.
  • This is a one-time matching donation to the project. It is not a repeating monthly match.
  • This offer limited to matching a donor’s first recurring donation to a project. If a donor cancels their recurring donation and makes a new recurring donation to the same project, they are not eligible for additional matching.
  • The intent of the matching offer is to match as many unique recurring donors as possible to as many organizations as possible.
  • GlobalGiving will monitor and review all donations made through this matching offer. We hope to match as many recurring donations as possible, but please note that to uphold the spirit of this matching offer GlobalGiving maintains the right to make a final decision on all matters concerning the allocation of matching funds. We reserve the right to prevent abuse of this offer and ensure that as many projects and donors are able to benefit as possible.

Announcing a Recurring Match to Last All Giving Season

Announcing a Recurring Match to Last All Giving Season

GlobalGiving will be running our next Recurring Match Campaign from Thursday, November 1 through Monday, December 31, 2018, to help incentivize your donors to start new recurring donations for your project!

Over the years, we’ve found great success with this campaign. Since the first Recurring Match Campaign launched in August 2012, these campaigns have raised more than $2 million dollars for 2,000+ projects on the GlobalGiving platform! We hope you see the value in this campaign for your fundraising and promote it to your supporters.

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.
