How does the new member bonus work?
Any recurring monthly donation that begins during the campaign period (November 1 to December 31) will be matched at the 12-month value of that donation up to $5,000.
So a new member that makes a donation of $10/ month will be matched at $120. If a new person makes a donation of $500 a month, we'd only match $5,000.
You may already have recurring monthly donors who have been giving months prior to NewsMatch. In these cases, we will only match their gifts made within the campaign period — most likely their monthly donations made in November and December.
