The GlobalGiving UK Japan Matching Campaign begins on 10th March 2016 3:00 PM GMT (11th March 2016 00:00 AM JST) and will close once the funds are used up, or on 31st May 2016 2:00 PM BST (31st May 2016 10 PM JST) if the funds have not been used by that time. Beware that matching funds might be used up before the official end of the campaign.
There is £10,000 in matching funds on GlobalGiving.co.uk.
Matching is applied at 50% up to £600per donor per project during the campaign.
GlobalGiving.co.uk will match up to £5,000 per project.
Unique donors are determined using numerous criteria, including name, email address, credit card number, mailing address, and IP address. We are monitoring these and other parameters in our system to ensure that only unique, distinct donors are counted towards the matching.
Only online donations made by credit card, debit card, PayPal, CAF Online, cheque or a GlobalGiving official gift card are eligible for matching on GlobalGiving.co.uk.
Donations made via JustGiving are not eligible.
Only organisations that are working on relief or recovery efforts in the Tohuku region of Japan are eligible for these matching funds.
Projects that are located in Japan, but not working on Tohoku-related issues, are not eligible for this matching campaign.
GlobalGiving UK reserves the right to approve all projects included in the campaign ahead of time. Projects must be approved and live on the GlobalGiving.co.uk website by 8th March 2016 to be eligible.
GlobalGiving UK has a 10% fee on donations but works to keep the fees as low as possible while providing great service and resources for charity partners. During the Japan Matching Campaign only the initial donation is subject to the 10% fee. The fee does not apply to the match. The fee covers all transactional charges such as credit card fees, as well as helps cover the costs we incur to promote organisations and projects, provide them with fundraising training and tools, and maintain and improve our online technology in order to keep you connecting with new donors. For example, if you receive a £600 donation, your organisation will receive £600- (£600*10%) + £300 = £840
Please note that GlobalGiving UK maintains the right to make a final decision on all matters concerning the adjudication of unique donors and final results of Japan Matching and will adjust results accordingly.
Please note that all donations are final. GlobalGiving UK cannot change the time, date, or status of a donation after it is processed for any reason.
GlobalGiving UK is a registered charity in the UK. Donations made by UK tax payers are eligible for Gift Aid (25% extra on original donations) which will be claimed by GlobalGiving UK for the project. However Gift Aid will not be matched.
