Opportunity for USA and Canada nonprofits serving the senior community to participate in an online fundraising event, with the possibility of receiving matching grants and rewards. Select applicants will be chosen to participate in a three-day online fundraising event for programs and services which benefit seniors. The fundraising event is scheduled to take place from midnight on July 11, 2017 through 5 PM on July 13, 2017 (Central Time).

GIVE65 is the first crowd-fundraising platform that is exclusively devoted to helping nonprofits raise money online for programs and services that create hope for seniors. Organizations providing direct support to seniors are given the greatest consideration for matching grants as part of the GIVE65 site. Only one financial reward may be provided to a qualifying nonprofit.

A limited number of organizations from the pool of applicants will compete for a total of up to $100,000 in matching grants. All approved, participating organizations will be eligible for one of two $10,000 financial rewards. Each of the two prize categories is further divided into thirds in an effort to recognize participating nonprofit organizations at various levels of operating budget. The prize categories are:

Prize Category 1: Most Dollars Raised
- Operating Budget Less than $500,000
- Operating Budget Between $500,000 and $1 million
- Operating Budget Over $1 million

Prize Category 2: Most Unique Donors*
- Operating Budget Less than $500,000
- Operating Budget Between $500,000 and $1 million
- Operating Budget Over $1 million

* Example: If one donor gives 5 different online donations to the same organization, the donor will only be counted as one donor for purposes of this prize category.

Guidelines for donations during the event:

- All GIVE65 donations are processed through the GIVE65 platform.
- There is an administrative fee of 8 percent plus credit card processing fees (currently 2.1% plus $0.30/transaction) deducted from each donation to your organization.
- Organizations can expect to receive approximately 90 percent of the total donations contributed.
- Every effort will be made to distribute funds raised, matching grants and financial prize awards to participating nonprofits within 15 business days following a project’s last day.
- Any donations provided to participating Nonprofits will be used solely for the program or project for which they are raising funds on the Site, as stated in their related application and profile required to participate on the Site.

Financial rewards start at $10,000.

Applicants must participate in a fundraising event scheduled from midnight on July 11, 2017 through 5 PM on July 13, 2017 (Central Time).
