Hourly prize winners will be pulled on December 1. Organizations can win a maximum of one hourly prize.
All other prize winners will be selected on December 3 after all giving concludes. Online giving concludes at end of Day December 1. Offline giving concludes at end of Day December 2.
Organizations can win a maximum of one prize in prize categories where two prizes are being awarded.
With the exception of the Parish-Most Unique Donor prize, the School-Most Unique Donor prize, the Ministry-Most Unique Donor prize, the Largest Single Donation prize, the $100,000 Total Eclipse prize and the 500 Donor Eclipse prize, all other prizes are randomly awarded to organizations that have received an #iGiveCatholic donation from at least 10 unique donors.
#iGiveCatholic donations are those made online any time during the November 16 through November 30 advanced giving period, or online during the December 1 giving day. In addition, offline cash and check donations made directly to the parish, school or ministry of choice during November 16 through end of day December 2 count as an #iGiveCatholic donation if made using the #iGiveCatholic pew envelopes, or by check specifying #iGiveCatholic in the memo line and entered as an offline gift by the organization on the organization's #iGiveCatholic profile page.
The Catholic Foundation reserves the right to validate offline donations before prizes are awarded.
If no participating organization meets the criteria of a prize, those prize funds will be added to the Grand Prize award amount.
