When will I receive funding from my campaign?
You will receive donor contributed funds from your campaign
approximately 15 business days after it has been fully funded or its expiration
date hits. How do I know who donated to my campaign and how
much they gave?
As donors give to your campaign,
you will be blind copied on their thank you email so you will always have a
continuous stream of who is donating to your campaign. On your dashboard, you
will be able to download a list of all your donors and how much they gave at
What does my campaign duration mean?
The campaign duration is how long you will have to secure
funding for your campaign on power2give.org after your campaign is live on the
site. After that time, the campaign will expire and no longer be “active” on
the site. The campaign will be removed from the site regardless of whether it
has been fully funded or not.
Can I resubmit an expired campaign?
If a campaign has expired but was not fully funded, it may be
resubmitted, but we recommend you revise and edit it to try a different
approach to receive the full funding amount.
What happens if my campaign is only partially
funded upon its expiration?
If a campaign is only
partially funded upon its completion, you will still receive the funds raised
for your campaign. It is then your responsibility to keep all donors
informed as to how the campaign might change as a result of receiving less
funding than requested and offer refunds if the campaign is no longer viable.
What happens if I don’t thank my donors?
While donors will receive an automatically system-generated
email thanking them for their gift, power2give.org requires all posters to
separately send a thank you to donors (either electronically or by mail). By
not thanking donors you not only run the risk of losing donor loyalty but also
your “good standing” status, which could potentially lead to account
Why is there an administrative fee?
As much as we would like our campaign posters and their
organizations to receive all the funding from the site, we still need to cover
credit card fees, website hosting costs, marketing materials and support new
technology developments to keep the site fresh and current. There is a
6.75% administrative fee that is calculated from the total amount of donor
funds received. This fee helps cover the cost of maintaining the power2give
platform including hosting fees, development cost, administrative work, and
credit card processing fees. There is no percentage taken on the Office of
Cultural Affairs matching funds.
Should I account for the administrative fee when I
am calculating the funding amount for my campaign or will power2give do it for
Yes, you should increase your campaign request to
ensure the net funds allow you to accomplish your campaign.
Is there a minimum or maximum amount a campaign can
No, there is no minimum amount; however, the
maximum campaign amount is $10,000. Larger campaigns can be divided into phases
or pieces if appropriate. The maximum request amount is $10,000 per campaign.
For each dollar raised, OCA will provide a $1 match, as funding is available.
This 1:1 match will continue until the campaign is either fully funded or
expired. The maximum matching grant for each campaign is $5,000. If your
campaign expires but has not been fully funded, you may opt to collect the
funds you have raised or re-post the campaign (albeit with recommended changes
to attract additional donors). For all funds raised on the site, ASC will
distribute a check to your organization approximately 15 business days after
your campaign‘s final removal from the site—whether it is removed after 45 days
or it is removed earlier due to having been fully funded. This check will
represent all funds the campaign raised on the site, minus ASC‘s administrative
fee. Organizations may receive up to a total of $10,000 in matching funds from
OCA, per fiscal year until matching funds are fully exhausted.
What is the timeline of the power2give
OCA will enforce a final
posting date depending on the fiscal year. All projects will go live in
September of each fiscal year and will expire at OCA's discretion to allow for
fiscal year procurement policies.
How many campaigns can I have active on
power2give.org at once?
The limit on the number of
campaigns you can have active on the site is set by the Office of Cultural
Affairs. It is anticipated that each organization can only submit one
campaign per 45-day
review cycle. Once a
campaign is complete there will be a 30-day waiting period before the
organization can launch another campaign.
What if my organization is unable to complete the
campaign directly following the receipt of the funds?
If your organization plans to complete the campaign at a
later date, please make this clear in the campaign narrative and when you
follow up with your donors who have given to the campaign. The tangible
connection to the campaign is an important piece of your donor loyalty.
What if I have
additional questions about campaign posting or promotions?
The Office of Cultural Affairs is excited
to bring the power2give platform to the City of Atlanta. If you have
questions, you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
What happens if the campaign I fund isn't fully
funded by the end of its posting period?
power2give.org intends to provide the donations to the campaign poster and
host organization even if the campaign is not
fully funded. In that case, the campaign posted, and host organization will
notify you as to how they plan to adjust their campaign.
