Two years ago, on April 25, 2015 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake violently shook Nepal just outside the capital of Kathmandu and sent devastating shocks through surrounding areas. Local GlobalGiving nonprofit partners and aid organizations immediately stepped up to start the recovery process to rebuild and repair lives in Nepal. The long-term relief process is still ongoing and vitally important.
On the two-year anniversary of the earthquake, in honor of the lives impacted by the destruction and GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners dedicated to the relief effort, GlobalGiving is matching donations at 50% starting 09:00 a.m. EDT on April 25, 2017 (18:45 p.m. NPT on April 25, 2017) until 23:59:59 p.m. EST on December 31, 2017 – while funds last. Also, for the first 24 hours of the campaign, organizations are competing for $3,000 in cash bonus prizes! The bonus prizes will award most donors and most funds raised. Donations will be matched up to $1,000 USD per donor, and each organization participating is eligible to receive up to $20,000 USD in matching funds.
