"This Challenge, taking place between March 1 (12:00:00 EST) and March 31, 2010 (23:59:59 EST), offers participants the opportunity to raise money for the work they do all over the world. The three projects that raise the most money will receive additional financial prizes, provided by the Starbucks Foundation, of $2.000, $1.000, and $500 respectively. In addition, the project with the greatest number of unique donors will be awarded an additional $1.000.
All projects that raise a minimum of $4.000 from at least 50 donors will be invited to remain on GlobalGiving’s site. These projects will be eligible to continue receiving donations from the general public, private and corporate foundations through www.globalgiving.org.
Online donations to projects participating in this Challenge will be accepted through March 31, 2010 until 11:59:59 EST. Checks received by March 30 will be included in the Challenge and will count towards the number of unique donors for each project. Checks received after March 31, 2010 will be applied to the indicated project, but will not count towards the Challenge. Checks should be made payable to the GlobalGiving Foundation and should clearly indicate the project to which the funds should be applied."
