March 18, 2015 Bonus Day

February is almost over and that means the first Bonus Day is right around the corner! To help your organization propel its fundraising efforts in 2015 GlobalGiving is hosting a Bonus Day on March 18, 2015.

Bonus Days are a great reason for your organization to reach out to your donors and ask them to give. It makes it so their donation goes a little further and gives them a short deadline to make a contribution. It is not only an opportunity for you to get matching funds and bonus prizes, but also an opportunity to engage with your donors and keep them excited about your organization!

We’re offering a 30% match on all donations up to $1,000 per donor per project, while funds remain. There is $60,000 available in matching and matching begins at 9:00:00 EDT and lasts until funds run out or 23:59:59 EDT.  There is also $2,000 in bonus prizes available! Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to hit your funding goals and supply your supporters with a time sensitive campaign.

  • Donations made on globalgiving.co.uk or any GlobalGiving corporate sites including Benevity are not eligible for matching.

  • Please note that GlobalGiving will monitor and review all donations made through this matching offer.
  • Online donations made using PayPal or credit card must be made by the PayPal account or credit card holder.
  • GlobalGiving will indicate in your donation manager which donations are eligible to be matched based on the time that the donation was made and the method of payment. This does not guarantee that a specific donation will be matched.
  • Any donor who makes an eligible donation on Bonus Day will be able to see the matching funds for their donation on their GlobalGiving receipt page if they refresh the receipt page after 60 seconds. This does not guarantee that a specific donation will be matched.
  • GlobalGiving maintains the right to make a final decision on all matters concerning the allocation of matching funds.
  • Please note that all donations are final. GlobalGiving cannot change the time, date, or status of a donation after it is processed for any reason.
  • GlobalGiving is a registered nonprofit in the United States. Donations made on globalgiving.org can only be claimed as tax deductible contributions on United States tax returns.
  • Fulfillment fee for donations: GlobalGiving charges a 15% fulfillment fee on donations but works to keep the fees you pay as low as possible while providing you great services and resources. During the March 18, 2015 Bonus Day the fulfillment fee only applies to the initial donation. The fulfillment fee does not apply to the match. The fee covers all transactional charges such as credit card fees, as well as helps cover the costs we incur to promote organizations and projects, provide them with fundraising training and tools, and maintain and improve our online technology in order to keep you connecting with new donors. With our add-on option, we also offer the donor the opportunity to make an additional donation to cover the fee.
