Rules and Eligibility Requirements for Prizes
Participation: Any individual may donate. Donations made through www.kygives.org to nonprofit organizations and registered public schools are 100% tax deductible and irrevocable. Donations will not be refunded. Contributions may only be made via credit or debit card. Checks are not accepted for this online giving event.
The minimum donation on www.kygives.org is $5.00. There is no maximum donation for Kentucky Gives Day.
Kentucky Gives Day prizes will be calculated by gifts received from 12:00am through 11:59pm EST, April 18, 2017 and all prize windows are based on Eastern Standard Time.
Prizes will be tracked and listed throughout the day on kygives.org; however, regardless of listing or announcements made on the day, all prizes are subject to verification after the event concludes and may be reversed up to 30 days after the event.
A prize calculated by counting the number of unique donors to an organization over a period of time defines a unique or distinct donor as a single individual or entity that made his/her donation online via the kygives.org website and is identified via a unique email address. For purposes of awarding prizes, multiple donations from one donor to the same nonprofit will count as one gift (and thus he/she/it will count as one unique donor).
Nonprofits may not win more than one prize in the Leaderboard or Golden Ticket category, but can win one prize in each category and are also edible for all prizes in the special prize category.
Nonprofits are limited to one KNN Leaderboard prize. If an organization qualifies for a prize on each of the two Leaderboards, they will receive the larger of the two prize amounts and the next qualifying organization will move up. A nonprofit eligible for a regional Leaderboard is also eligible for a KNN Leaderboard prize.
Nonprofits are limited to one Golden Ticket prize. Golden Tickets are based on budget size and will use the budget size information provided by the organization at the time of registration and confirmed via KNN membership records and/or IRS Form 990 information.
Kentucky Gives Day is an ONLINE giving event and prizes are awarded to recognize this unique aspect of the event. Any participating organization found to accept checks from donors and enter them online with their organization’s credit card (or any similar actions), will be prohibited from receiving prizes – such actions violate the spirit of Kentucky Gives Day. KNN encourages participating nonprofits to recognize any check donations received by your organization through your Kentucky Gives Day fundraising efforts when communicating the success of your overall fundraising total to your donors after the event.
KNN prize awards will be mailed prior to 6/30/17.
