• Awarded prizes are subject to audit and will be finalized by the Community Foundation of Abilene no later than May 15 at 5 p.m.
• Prizes may be revoked or withheld if gifts or matches can’t be validated or if donations do not qualify as “Unique Gifts" or "Unique Donations,” including falsifying donor email addresses or matches.
• A “Unique Gift” or “Unique Donation” is defined as one donation of $10 or more to one organization from one donor. Multiple gifts made by the same donor to the same organization will only be counted as one “unique donation.” Donors can make eligible gifts to multiple organizations.
• Organizations cannot donate to themselves to generate prizes, match/challenge dollars, or amplification fund earnings.
• Gifts made online at during the early giving period (April 29 – May 6) will count towards an organization’s amplification earnings but will not count toward any possible prizes.
• Organizations can win only one "Time is Money" prize throughout the day.
• Organizations can win only one "Show Me the Money" prize throughout the day.
• Organizations can win only one "Golden Ticket" or "Platinum Ticket" prize throughout the day.
• Organizations can win only one "Cue the Confetti" prize throughout the day.

• Rules on the social media contest can be found at:
• The "Trailblazer" and "Spur The Giving" prizes are for rural nonprofits (located within a 150-mile radius around Oplin, Texas) only. Abilene nonprofits are ineligible for these rural prizes.
• Anyone who attempts to game the system runs the risk of being caught in our audit.
• Failure to comply with these rules may result in your organization being prohibited from participating in a future Abilene Gives campaign.
• In order to receive the prize money, an organization must raise donations equal to or greater than the prize dollars awarded. For example, if you receive a prize of $1,000, you must raise at least $1,000 in donations. If the organization only raises $250, it will only receive $250 of the prize money awarded.
• Prizes are subject to change based on the discretion of the Community Foundation of Abilene.
