*“Qualifying organizations” are those with published profiles on the Giving Common as of September 24, 2012.
**“Unique donors” are different, individual donors giving to a specific nonprofit. If two or more donations are made to an organization from a single donor, that donor will be counted as a single unique donor for the purpose of the prizes referencing a unique donor; however, if a donor gives to two or more nonprofits, that donor will be counted as a unique donor for each nonprofit to which that donor has given.
*** A maximum of $5,000 of each donation will be counted towards the “Most Money Raised” Grand Prizes.
