Bonus Funds

Bonus Funds

Connecticut Community Foundation actively raises money for the bonus fund and prize pools.

The first $50,000 raised by each participating nonprofit will be enhanced with bonus funds.

The amount received will be proportional to each organization’s percentage of the total funds raised during the event.

For example, if an organization receives 3% of the total funds raised through Give Local, it will receive 3% of the available bonus funds. Bonus funds are based on 100% of each gift, before fees are assessed.

Over the past several years, bonus funds have stretched each dollar donated by 13-20%.


Throughout Give Local, prizes will be awarded according to criteria announced on the Give Local website. Some prizes are competitive, while others are awarded randomly.
