Power Hours

Several times throughout the day, a special Power Hour pool of $15,000 is set aside and up for grabs! The more a nonprofit raises in the designated Power Hour, the more they earn in free money from the Power Hour pool! Look for all donations to be stretched further during the 11 AM hour, the 3 PM hour, and the 7 PM hour!

Here's how it works! During each one of the three power hours, $15,000 is available. All donors giving during those hours will earn extra dollars for their favorite nonprofits! At the end of the designated Power Hour, the amount raised by a participating nonprofit will be calculated against the total raised by all nonprofits in that hour to determine a percentage. That percentage will then be applied to the amount in the pool to determine the amount to be awarded from the Power Hour pool.
