Change in Campaign Total Calculations

On Tuesday, November 22, 2016 donors and supporters of the Give! Campaign will notice a change in Leaderboard Status of participating nonprofits as well as total Donor and Donations on the IndyGive.com Home page.
This change was done in support of our participating nonprofits requests to remove the Matching Grant donors and dollars pledged from their totals.
The purpose of showing the matching grants was to help introduce this years campaign with momentum and inspire donations to participating nonprofits to help them achieve their matching grants. Our nonprofits have let us know that it has instead caused some confusion for donors thinking the matching grants had already been achieved and so to benefit our nonprofits and Give! community at large these numbers have been removed to reflect only donors and funds raised since November, 1 2016.
Matching grant dollars will be added to nonprofit totals once they have met and/or exceeded their individual matching grant totals on their profile pages.
We apologize for any confusion this may have caused  and now it’s up to you and the community to help the nonprofits earn those grants and make those totals a reality.
