America’s Giving Challenge is one of my favorite online fundraising competitions. Last year the Causes application on Facebook raised over $600,000 for nonprofits during the challenge.
America’s Giving Challenge is a 30-day competition, running until November 6th that allows causes to compete for cash awards by inspiring the most people to donate to their cause, regardless of the dollar amount.
This competition has a $1,000 award every day for the most donations in a 24 hour period. There is a grand prize of $50,000 for the highest number of unique individual donations between October 7 and November 6. And there is also a runner up prize of $25,000 for second place and $10,000 for 3rd to 7th place (details & other prize info).
To get started start a new cause on Facebook or enter your current cause by visiting your cause homepage. Or, sign up on their website (and check the leaderboard).
