Prizes and Awards for #weGIVECATHOLIC 2020 (12/1/20)
Catholic Community Foundation
Prize Structure and Rules (Revised 9.25.20)

The grand prize winners (from participating organizations) will be selected based on the number of unique donors who support the organization during the 24-hour period for #WeGiveCatholic. A unique donor is identified by First Name, Last name, and unique email addresses entered at the time of the donation transaction. If a donor gives to the same nonprofit multiple times, he or she will be counted as a unique donor only for the first donation transaction.

Parishes and schools will be segmented into three distinct groups for the purpose of awarding prizes.
• Parishes: 1-749 registered households (small); 750-1499 registered households (medium); 1500+ registered households (large)
• Schools: 1-249 enrollment (small); 250-499 enrollment (medium); 500+ enrollment (large)
