Opportunity for USA and Canada nonprofits serving the senior community to participate in an online fundraising event, with the possibility of receiving matching grants and rewards. Select applicants will be chosen to participate in a three-day online fundraising event for programs and services which benefit seniors.

The fundraising event is scheduled to take place from 7 a.m. on July 10, 2018, through midnight July 12, 2018 (Central Time), for 65 hours, participating nonprofit organizations will use the GIVE65 toolkit promotional content to rally their supporters to give in support of seniors.

Participating nonprofits have been divided into three tiers based on the size of the organization's operating budget. Within each tier, two financial rewards will be awarded - The Most Dollars Raised and The Most Unique Donors. The three tiers are:
- Tier 1: Operating Budget Less Than $500,000
- Tier 2: Operating Budget Between $500,000 and $1 Million
- Tier 3: Operating Budget Greater Than $1 Million

How It Works:
Home Instead Senior Care Foundation provides social media and e-communications marketing to help increase awareness for one's project among an entirely new audience of potential donors. There is no cost to participate.

Donations:
- All GIVE65 donations are processed through the GIVE65 platform.
- There is an administrative fee of 8 percent plus credit card processing fees (currently 2.2 percent) deducted from each donation to one's organization.
- Organizations can expect to receive approximately 90 percent of the total donations contributed.

This year, the Foundation is changing things up a bit. All participating organizations are now eligible for matching grants.

Matching Grants:
If the Foundation awards a matching grant to a nonprofit, the funds raised on the site during the designated matching gift timeframe will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000. Any participating nonprofit awarded a matching grant can expect to receive 100 percent of the designated match amount if the nonprofit raised an amount at least equal to or greater than the match amount through the GIVE65 site.

Financial Prize Rewards:
- Any financial prize rewards are awarded at 100 percent of their value.
- The total amount of each financial prize reward is determined solely by Home Instead Senior Care Foundation's Board of Directors and contingent upon the amount of funds available for distribution.
- All organizations invited to participate in the GIVE65 Event are eligible to be considered for any available financial prize rewards.
- In connection with the annual GIVE65 Event scheduled for 2018, Home Instead Senior Care Foundation intends to award financial prize rewards to selected participating nonprofits in the total amount of $60,000 - to be divided evenly among two prize categories, with $30,000 available for each category. Nonprofit organizations are eligible to receive one financial reward and are not eligible to receive a financial reward in both prize categories.
- Each of the two prize categories is further divided into thirds in an effort to recognize participating nonprofit organizations at various levels of operating budget. The prize categories are:

Prize Category #1: Most Dollars Raised
Operating Budget Less than $500,000
Operating Budget Between $500,000 and $1 million
Operating Budget Over $1 million

Prize Category #2: Most Unique Donors*
Operating Budget Less than $500,000
Operating Budget Between $500,000 and $1 million
Operating Budget Over $1 million

* Example: If one donor gives five different online donations to the same organization, the donor will only be counted as one donor for purposes of this prize category.

Home Instead Senior Care Foundation is providing $125,000 in matching grants. Every participating nonprofit is eligible for up to $5,000 in matching grants. This is a dollar-for-dollar match (as long as funds are still available), which means organizations do not have to reach $5,000 and/or their fundraising goal to receive matching dollars. In addition to matching grants, all approved, participating organizations will be eligible for one of two $10,000 financial rewards recognizing outstanding small-, medium- and large-sized participating nonprofits based on operating budget.
