Kentucky Gives Day is a 24-hour online fundraising event bringing charities and Kentuckians together for a powerful day of action. The goal is to raise as much money as possible – giving every Kentuckian the opportunity to support causes they care about and giving charitable nonprofits the opportunity to share their story – all through a single online giving site and in just 24 hours!

On Wednesday, April 9, Kentucky Gives Day will bring charities and Kentuckians together for a powerful day of action. From 12:00 am to 11:59 pm EST, supporters of participating Kentucky nonprofits can go online to connect with causes they care about and make tax-deductible donations.

The top five organizations in each leaderboard category that raise the most money will receive bonus prizes of $2,500, $1,500, $1,000, $500 and $250 respectively.
In addition, 10 "Golden Tickets" - mini prizes of $100 or $250 will be given to organizations throughout the day.
Golden Tickets will be given each hour of the day. Many of those "tickets" are random drawings, but targeting the following hours could bring an extra $250 to the charity of your choice each time the charity hits the most dollars or most number of unique donors for that hour.
•             Most dollars raised - 7am-8 am, 10am-11am, 11pm-12 pm
•             Most number of unique donors - 11am-12 pm, 3 pm-4 pm, 8 pm-9 pm, 10 pm-11
