Make An Impact - September 13, 2012
Mark your calendars for the 4th annual Get Up and Give! North Texas Giving Day, which will be held from 7 a.m. to Midnight on Thursday, September 13, 2012.
"Get Up and Give!" North Texas Giving Day 2012 is a day when Dallas Christian College is eligible to receive matching funds when donations are made online through DonorBridge. DonorBridge is run by Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT), with the support of The Dallas Foundation and the Center for Nonprofit Management.
Do I even want to take part in Get Up and Give! North Texas Giving Day?
Of course you do! All credit card donations of $25 or more made online through DonorBridge will be eligible for a percentage of matching money, making money received on North Texas Giving Day go even farther in supporting DCC.
How will matching dollars be determined? Is it a "dollar for dollar" match?
Donations of $25 and above will receive a match of some percentage. Matching money is not a straight "dollar for dollar" match. The matching amount will be determined until after Giving Day by taking the total matching funds available as of Giving Day, and dividing the total amount of donations from the day, to determine the percentage by which each donation will be matched.
Amount of matching / Total amount donated to all nonprofits = % match per dollar
$1,000,000 (the amount of match funds) / $12,000,000 (the total donation amount raised) = $0.08 match per dollar
$4,000,000 (the total donation amount raised)
So, in this example of having $1,000,000 available in matching funds, if a nonprofit raised $20,000 in donations on 2012 North Texas Giving Day, the amount of their matching funds would be $1,600.00. Again, this is simply an example to explain the formula.
