How it Works… All transactions processed online through a secure portal For tax purposes, donors receive an immediate gift acknowledgment email from GNOF Net cash remitted to GNOF (approx 93%-95% of gift) - Standard credit card processing fees - Kimbia processing fees - GNOF receives NO fee for this event GNOF calculates match pool and remits balance
Cash Match / Awards / Prizes GNOF’s goal of $150,000 for the match pool Additional awards based on activity Hourly prizes will be selected at random National match dollars will also be available
Nonprofits will be divided into two groups based on budget: Small $1 million Most $$ RaisedMost Donors 1 st place $10,0001 st place 10,000 2 nd place $5,000 3 rd place $3,000
The Match Based on each nonprofit dollars raised Each nonprofit will receive their proportional share For example… - Total Match fund of $150,000 - Total raised during the day $1,000,000 - NPO #1 raises $100,000 (or 10% of the total of the day) - NPO #1 receives a match of $15,000 (or 10% of the total Match Pool)
