May 13th Bonus Day – We’re Matching EVERY Donation!

May 13th Bonus Day – We’re Matching EVERY Donation!

This is a brand new kind of Bonus Day! On May 13th, GlobalGiving will be matching every single online donation between 09:00:01 EDT and 23:59:59 EDT.

How is this possible?

In order to match every donation for 15 hours, GlobalGiving is hosting our first-ever Pro-Rated Bonus Day. There is $75,000 available in matching funds and matching percentage will be determined based on the total amount raised that day. So, the matching percentage will be calculated at 23:59:59 EDT using the following matching formula:

($75,000/Total amount raised) x 100 = Matching percentage

Here are some examples:

If the total amount raised is $150,000:

  • On Bonus Day, you raise $5,000 for your project.
  • The total amount raised on Bonus Day is $150,000.
  • There are $75,000 in matching.
  • Use our matching formula to calculate the matching percentage: ($75,000/$150,000) x 100 = 50%
  • Your organization would receive: $5,000 x .5 = $2,500

If the total amount raised is $300,000:

  • On Bonus Day, you raise $5,000 for your project
  • The total amount raised on Bonus Day is $300,000.
  • There are $75,000 in matching.
  • Use our matching formula to calculate the matching percentage: ($75,000/$300,000) x 100 = 25%
  • Your organization would receive: $5,000 x .25 = $1,250

Another one? Here’s a real life example from last May’s Bonus Day:

  • In the May 2014 Bonus Day, Ishahayi Beach School Foundation raised $8,735
  • The total raised on that Bonus Day was $190,640
  • With $75,000 available in matching, here would be the matching funds for Ishahayi Beach School Foundation:

($75,000/$190,640) x 100 = 39.3%

  • Ishahayi Beach School Foundation would receive: $8,735 x .393 = $3,432.86 in matching

Each donation you receive until midnight will be matched! This also means that your donors don’t have to give right away at 9 am EDT. Donors can give later in the day and still have their donations matched!

Why is GlobalGiving offering a Pro-Rated Bonus Day?

In 2014, you asked us to come up with a new Bonus Day structure that would prevent funds from running out early in the day. Organizations were hearing from their supporters, who were unhappy when they gave after limited matching funds were exhausted. So, we challenged our Leadership Council to propose alternative Bonus Day structures that would allow our limited matching funds to last longer. After considering several great proposals, the Pro-Rated Bonus Day was born! We are excited to experiment with this new structure and we hope to continue to improve and evolve GlobalGiving’s matching campaigns to help our partners achieve their fundraising goals.

Your Partner Rewards 

To maximize this upcoming Bonus Day as much as possible, it is important to know the ins and outs of Partner Rewards. To start, below are easy steps to finding your Partner Rewards Level:

  1. Log-in to Project Entry (PE)
  2. Access your dashboard
  3. You will see a grey box titled, “Reward Level”
  4. Click “Reward Level”

Once you complete these steps, you will see that there are different sub-categories GlobalGiving uses to determine your Partner Rewards Level. Your level is based upon the lowest sub-rank. For example, if you are a Leader in the reporting sub-category and a Superstar in the other five categories, your Partner Rewards Level will be Leader. These levels are also calculated every single day around 8 AM EST. This allows all of you to have a chance to increase your Partner Rewards Level and maintain your high statuses. Remember – all matching will be calculated based on your organization’s Partner Rewards Level as of 11:00 PM EDT (time in your city) on Tuesday, July 15th! Be sure that your Partner Rewards Level is secure by this time.

Bonus Day Tips and Tricks

Follow the strategy below to plan out a success Bonus Day.

Week 1, June 23-27: Start initial preparations for the Bonus Day

  • Bonus Day Funding Goal (excluding matching funds and bonus prizes):______________
  • How many donors do you need to reach your funding goal?:________________
  • Learn more about Partner Rewards Bonus Day by clicking here.
  • Learn your organization’s Partner Rewards Level.

Week 2, June 30 – July 4: Identify supporters and get feedback

  • Identify potential donors, such as board members, former volunteers and interns, and friends/family
  • Identify donor captains. Donor captains are responsible for raising a funding goal on the day of Bonus Day. For example, a donor captain may be a former intern that is excited about your work and pledges to raise a certain amount of money from a certain amount of donors for your project. Donor captains help your organization grow its network of supporters.
  • Contact donor captains. Let them know why you are asking for their help and tell them how they can help. Remember your donor captains are persons that care about your organization, the work you are doing, and most importantly they care about you (this is the number one reason donors give – they know and trust you)!
  • Set up a consultation call with Katherine to go over your strategy and get feedback. Click here to sign up for a consultation.

Week 3, July 7 – July 11: Begin communication with supporters and write communications for Bonus Day

    • Send an email to your network letting them know that on July 16th you will be asking them for a favor, and tell them to look out for an email. Include a quote from a beneficiary, a story about one of your beneficiaries, or an update on how your project is doing. You want to make sure that you remind them about the great work your organization is doing, and why their donation will make a difference. Include a world clock announcer, so they know that time Bonus Day starts in their location, but do not include the link to give.
    • Call you major donors and supporters to let them know about the Bonus Day on the 16th, and that they should be on the look out for an email from you about how to give on July 16th
    • Put together messaging for your organization to use on Bonus Day. This should include the following:
  1. A project report for GlobalGiving. Submit your project report to GlobalGiving before Bonus Day, and request that it be sent out on July 16th at 9 AM EDT (Bonus Day start time). In your project report include an update about your project, a quote from a beneficiary, and/or story of one of your beneficiaries. Also, don’t forget to include a call-to-action for donors to give on Bonus Day. Your project report should inspire them to give.
  2. Write and send messaging for your donor captains  to use for Bonus Day asks. You want to make sure that assisting your organization is easy for them, and that they are sharing the correct information. Include a template email, sample tweets, and sample Facebook posts, if relevant.

Week 4, July 14 – 18: Bonus Day week and thank you notes

    • Day before Bonus Day: Send out an email to supporters the day before Bonus Day letting them know that there is an opportunity for them to have their donation matched. Let them know when Bonus Day starts. Include the world clock event announcer, so they know what time Bonus Day starts in their location. Do not include a link to your project page or how to give quite yet!
    • Bonus Day: When Bonus Day starts at 9 AM EDT, send out an email to your supporters letting them know that you are now asking for the favor, and why. Include directions on how to give, by including a direct link to your project page. Remember – do not send donors to GlobalGiving’s homepage! Please send donors directly to your project page in order to minimize confusion and clicks.
    • Day after Bonus Day: Make sure you thank your donors in a timely manner by using GlobalGiving’s thank you note feature. Click here to learn more about the thank you note feature.

Communication Strategy Brought to You by a Bonus Day Rockstar – RefugeeOne

When putting together your organization’s fundraising strategy take into account the helpful tips below.

  • Call major donors and board members
  • Send a series of emails to your donor network
    • 1st email – Send the week before Bonus Day. Have this message be a teaser. Do not revealing the nature of the match.  For example, “Keep a lookout for an opportunity to make your donation BIG!”
    • 2nd email – Send the Monday before Bonus Day. Include a story about a beneficiary. This is still a teaser (don’t reveal how to give yet).
    • 3rd email – Send the day before Bonus Day. This is the last of the teasers. For example, “Tomorrow get ready to make your donation count. Check your email tomorrow to find out how!”
    • 4th email – Send the day of at 9 am EDT. Reveal the GlobalGiving Bonus Day match and include a direct link to your project page. Saving  information on how to give until the last email will prevent donors from giving too early.

Use GlobalGiving Tools

  • Send out a project report with an update and a Bonus Day call to action. You are able schedule project reports to be sent at a desired date and time. Scheduling your project reports will allow you to manage your fundraising strategy.
  • If you haven’t thanked your donors then now is the time! Use GlobalGiving’s thank you feature to send emails directly to donors that have given to your project(s). Click here to learn more.
