  8. The minimum gift that will be accepted is $20. There is no maximum per gift, nor maximum per charity.
  9. A donor is defined as an individual or corporation/business. Organizations cannot donate to themselves
  10. A unique gift is defined as one gift to one organization from one donor. Multiple gifts made by the same donor to the same organization will not be counted toward these prizes.
  11. Donors are encouraged to make gifts to multiple organizations of their choice.

  13. For any single gift greater than $10,000, only the first $10,000 will be considered for bonus pool funds.
  14. The percentage in which the Host Partners will allocate bonus pool funds will depend upon the total bonus pool amount as well as the total of donations raised during the event. For example, if our bonus pool is $50,000 and the total of all eligible gifts raised during event is $200,000, then the pro-rata bonus will be $0.25 on the dollar. (Other markets who have had giving days typically average $0.15-$0.30 on the dollar.) Using this example: If an organization raises $5,000 during the event, they will be awarded an additional $1,250 in bonus pool money.
  15. The total fee of 6.1% credit card and processing fees will be deducted from the total amount raised for each organization. Using the example above in item 13, an organization would be awarded a grand total of $5,920 ($5,000 - $330 for fees + $1,250 for the bonus pool + any prizes awarded).
  16. Each gift of $20 or more to a different organization will be counted on the website leaderboard.
