Get Ready For Major Gift Fundraising This July

Get Ready For Major Gift Fundraising This July

WHAT: The July Bonus Day is a day to celebrate and encourage large donations! Donations from $100 and up to $1,000 will be matched while $250,000 in matching funds remain this July 15th. The higher the donation, the higher the match! There will also be $30,000 in bonus prizes for most funds raised. 

WHY: Most organizations receive the bulk of their funding from a small section of their donors base. We call these donors ‘Major Donors.’  Their support is game changing. This campaign is designed to help you identify, steward, and retain your organization’s most generous supporters and the momentous accomplishments their giving makes possible!

WHO: All GlobalGiving partners are invited to participate and we will automatically include your active projects and microprojects. Whether you’re ready to participate depends on where your organization is at in the process of major donor cultivation! 

For organizations that decide to participate, please submit all items that require GlobalGiving approval (new projects, project edits, project appeals + reports) by Friday, July 10.

WHEN + WHERE: The July Bonus Day runs from 09:00:00 a.m. ET to 23:59:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, July 15, 2020. Fundraising totals, remaining matching funds, and bonus prizes will be displayed on the July Bonus Day leaderboard.

Apply To Participate In World Refugee Week

Apply To Participate In World Refugee Week

WHAT: In honor of World Refugee Day, GlobalGiving will host World Refugee Week June 15 – 20 to bring attention to the millions of people around the world forced to flee their homes, and seek refuge in foreign countries. GlobalGiving will match the first $500 raised by all campaign participants dollar for dollar and there will be $50,000 in bonus prizes.

WHY: At the end of 2019, 50.8 million people were displaced inside their countries due to conflict, violence, and disasters. 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: GlobalGiving partners with projects supporting refugee relief efforts are invited to submit an Expression of Interest form by Friday, May 29, 2020, to be considered for the campaign. 

For the purposes of this campaign, we’re defining ‘refugee’ as: People around the world forced to leave their homes and seek refuge from conflict, violence, natural disasters, human rights violations, or persecution. Includes refugees, asylum seekers, and Internally Displaced Persons — all people forcibly displaced within and across state borders.

WHEN + WHERE: GlobalGiving’s World Refugee Week runs from 09:00 ET on Monday, June 15, 2020, to 23:59 ET on Saturday, June 20, 2020. Fundraising totals will be displayed on the World Refugee Week leaderboard.
