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)
