Random Daily Drawing: One donor will have $100 added to their donation daily during the campaign. Random drawing will be held each weekday around noon.
Social Media Milestone: Each participating nonprofit is eligible for one prize based on the number of social media messages they post during the live campaign on Facebook and/or Twitter including the #AvenuesforHope hashtag, or a link to the www.avenuesforhope.org website or their unique donation form link. Three posts = $100, Nine = $250, Fifteen = $500.

Matching Funds: Will be distributed on a pro rata basis according to the total amount raised by each organization. (If one organization receives 5% of the total donations, it would receive 5% of the Match Fund.)
A minimum of .25 cents will be added per $1 donated (each unique gift of $25-$20,000 is eligible). Gifts matched by the Benefactor Bonus are not eligible for additional matching funds.
