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 $130,000 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. These donors help keep the lights on and move the organization towards achieving its mission. 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!

To learn more about major gift cultivation and identify where your organization is at, tune into the second half of the campaign overview webinar (minute 25:50).  

For all organizations that decide to participate, please submit all items that require GlobalGiving approval (new projects, project edits, project appeals + reports) by Friday, July 12.

WHEN + WHERE: The July Bonus Day runs from 09:00:00 ET to 23:59:59 ET on Thursday, July 18, 2019. Fundraising totals, remaining matching funds, and bonus prizes will be displayed on the July Bonus Day leaderboard.

GlobalGiving Stands With Refugees

GlobalGiving Stands With Refugees

What: World Refugee Day is a one-day matching campaign focusing on the millions of people around the world forced to flee their homes, and seek refuge in foreign countries. Donations up to $2,500 will be matched at 100% while funds remain and there will be $3,000 in bonus prize for the top fundraising projects.

Why: According to the United Nations High Commissions for Refugees, at the end of 2017, 68.5 million people had been forcibly displaced worldwide. These millions of children, women and men have been driven from their homes by conflict, violence, natural disasters, human rights violations, or persecution. What’s more shocking is that “one person becomes displaced every two seconds.”

Who: The World Refugee Campaign is exclusively for active Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations on GlobalGiving with projects supported by GlobalGiving’s Syrian Refugee Relief Fund, Rohingya Refugee Relief Fund, and East Africa Drought & Famine Relief Fund. Projects supported by these Funds will be automatically included in the campaign.

New projects and/or project edits must be submitted to GlobalGiving by Tuesday, June 18, in order to be approved in time for inclusion in the World Refugee Day Campaign.

When + Where: GlobalGiving’s World Refugee Day campaign runs from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 ET on Thursday, June 20, 2019. Fundraising totals and bonus prizes will be displayed on the World Refugee Day leaderboard.
