#GivingTuesday Rebuild Together: An Exclusive GlobalGiving Matching Campaign

#GivingTuesday Rebuild Together: An Exclusive GlobalGiving Matching Campaign

In these last few months, multiple disasters have taken a brutal toll on millions of people around the world. Hurricane Harvey has submerged neighborhoods in Texas, nearly 400 people have died from earthquakes in Mexico, and hurricanes Maria and Irma have devastated infrastructure and limited access to safe drinking water, fuel, and emergency medical care in the US and the Caribbean.

Fortunately, our amazing nonprofit partners are responding in the face of almost unfathomable destruction by tirelessly bringing relief to those in need. Our partners have worked with local governments in the Caribbean to distribute aid that was clogged at the port, provided fuel for generators so that hospitals could operate in Puerto Rico, and built transitional housing for victims in Mexico.

Given the massive scope of damage, recovery efforts will continue for months and, in some areas, years. Luckily, GlobalGiving nonprofit partners and donors are in it for the long haul. We have seen the inherent goodness of people from every corner of the world, eager to help those in need. #GivingTuesday is the perfect day to capture this wave of generosity and ensure that your organizations can continue to support people in need of long-term recovery.

GlobalGiving’s 2017 Year-End Campaign will offer $10,000 in total prize money! Prizes vary in size and will be awarded throughout the Year-End Campaign as well at the end of the campaign. Will your organizations be the first to get 50 donors? Raise the most dollars? Get spotlighted for being in the top 5% of participants? We certainly hope so!  

All Active Partner, Leader, and Superstar projects will be automatically included in the campaign and on the leaderboard. See Terms and Conditions below for complete prize breakdown and eligibility.

We’ll also be giving away GlobalGiving Certificates for fundraising success, GlobalGiving homepage time, and customized social media graphics. See Terms & Conditions below to find out how you can win!

Lastly, throughout the whole campaign new recurring donations up to $200 per donor per project will get an additional 100% match on the initial donation (as long as it remains active for three months.)

Make This Year’s #GivingTuesday Count: All Donors, All Day, All Donations!

Last year #GivingTuesday was a record breaker, raising over $168 million dollars for charitable organizations all over the world. Here at GlobalGiving, we know the importance of this day, no matter where you’re located. That’s why this #GivingTuesday, we’re making all donors, all day, all donations count.

Starting at midnight EDT on Tuesday, November 28th and running all day, projects will be competing for a portion of $75,000 Incentive Fund. Your share of the fund will be determined by what percentage of the total fund your organization raises on Giving Tuesday. For example, if your organization raises 5% of the total dollars raised on Giving Tuesday, you will be awarded 5% – or $3,750 – of the Incentive Fund. This means that all donations from all donors will count all day!

There will also be $25,000 in Bonus Prizes to compete for on #GivingTuesday awarded to the top 14 performing organizations with the most funds raised and most unique donors. See Terms + Conditions below for breakdown and eligibility of bonus prizes.

Finally, there will be a 100% match on all recurring donations started on #GivingTuesday up to $200. The initial donation will count towards your total funds raised on the 28th. As always, feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

We’re just five weeks out from #GivingTuesday, start your preparations today!

World Food Day

World Food Day

According to the United Nations, 1 in every 9 people go to bed hungry. Millions are living on the brink of starvation across East Africa, Yemen, and north-east Nigeria. Reaching #ZeroHunger is possible and could save millions of lives each year.

Our partners are responding to food insecurity through emergency feeding programs in South Sudan, mobile applications for farmers in Guatemala, and everything in between. GlobalGiving is committed to standing with our nonprofit community and supporting the efforts of these organizations around the world with a focus on the famines in Africa.

That is why for World Food Day on Monday, October 16th, 2017, from 9:00:01am EDT to 11:59:59pm EDT, GlobalGiving is putting up $20,000 in matching funds and $2,000 in bonus prizes for our nonprofit partners responding to the drought in Africa. Eligible projects must be tagged for the “Africa Drought and Famine Fund” on GlobalGiving and approved by GlobalGiving staff as supporting drought or famine relief in South Sudan, Yemen, Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, or north-east Nigeria.
