Gear Up For GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign

Gear Up For GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign

WHAT: Join GlobalGiving for our 2019 Year-End Campaign during the biggest fundraising month of the year! Following #GivingTuesday, GlobalGiving is offering prizes galore to celebrate you, our partners, and help drive more funds towards your important work. This year we have bonus prizes totaling $12,000 for top crowdfunding projects and much more! 

WHY: With approximately 31% of all annual giving occurring in December, the end of the year is the most crucial time for almost every nonprofit. Recognizing that the holiday season is in full swing, it makes sense for donors to participate in a time of generosity, and utilize the last opportunity to make tax-deductible donations count for this calendar year. For nonprofits, the end of the year is a natural moment to share reflections on the year, broadcast major accomplishments and perhaps major hurdles that still remain, and announce big ideas to fundraise for in the new year.

WHO: The Year-End Campaign is specifically for GlobalGiving’s active Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations. Active projects and microprojects will be automatically included. The deadline to submit new projects, project edits, project appeals, and project reports is 17:00:00 ET on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2019.

WHEN + WHERE: GlobalGiving’s 2019 Year-End Campaign will begin at 00:00:00 ET on Wednesday Dec. 4, 2019, and end at 23:59:59 ET on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2019. Prizes will be displayed on the Year-End Campaign leaderboard.

#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.

Announcing GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign!

Announcing GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign!

Year-end giving is the biggest fundraising season for many nonprofits all over the world. Nearly one third of all annual giving occurs in December alone, while 12% happens in just the last three days of the year. GlobalGiving is here to make sure this is your strongest year-end fundraising season yet!!

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.)

Now is a great time to start preparing. Check out the Year-End Fundraising page and reach out with any questions!

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

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!
