A donation pool is the initial amount of money a company contributes in order to kickoff their giving bracket. We recommend that companies contribute $5-$15 per employee to the donation pool.
When any game reaches a tie, our platform randomly selects one of the two nonprofits to move forward.
Your company’s Giving Madness champion (the nonprofit that makes it the furthers in your giving bracket) receives 50% of donations. The runner-up receives 26% of donations. The 2 that get to the final 4 and do not move forward, receive 4% of donations each. The 4 that reach the final 8 that do not move forward receive 2% of donations each. The 8 nonprofits in your giving bracket that do not move past the first round receive 1% of donations.
Giving Madness is free for companies with 25 employees or less. For companies with more than 25 employees, pricing varies by number of employees. Please check the Giving Madness pricing page for information.
We do not take any portion of donations processed through our system. Stripe charges typical credit card fees of 2.2% + 30 cents on these donations but nothing else comes out of your donation. For international credit cards, Stripe takes an additional 1% credit card fee.
Yes. When making a donation on Giving Madness, the donation (minus the credit card fees) go directly to our donor-advised fund partner the Givinga Foundation (EIN: 47-4172718). Utilizing a donor-advised fund ensures the donation is always considered a donation, allows tax-deductible eligibility, and gives the donor the opportunity to create a mini donor-advised fund, doing all their giving in one place.
As many times as you want!
