(“Prize Partners”) have partnered with the Sponsor to provide the Incentive Program Prizes.

Entry Period

The entry period ends on January 31, 2024 at 11:59 pm (ET) or may be extended or shortened in Sponsor’s sole discretion (“Entry Period”). Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for the Incentive Program.

Subject to the additional restrictions of these Official Rules, eligible participants of the Incentive Program must be legal U.S. residents, 18 years of age or older, who contribute at least $365/year to the Campaign with a second entry for increasing their contribution to the Campaign by at least $100 or more from their 2022 pledge, and submit an Entry. Employees or board members of Sponsor or Sponsor’s parent, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies, and the immediate families or members of the same households of such individuals are not eligible for any of the Prizes. Employees or board members of Prize Partners or Prize Partners’ parents, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies, and the immediate families or members of the same households of such individuals are eligible for all of the Prizes except the prize which is sponsored by their own company.  The term “immediate families” includes spouses, parents, siblings, children, and step-relations. Proof of age, identity, insurance, and the other eligibility criteria must be furnished to Sponsor upon request. Sponsor will not award Prizes to anyone not meeting eligibility requirements. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entrant if these Official Rules are not followed. Prizes are non-transferable.  All information in the Entries must be complete and accurate.

How to Enter
All Entries must be received during the Entry Period. Each person contributing to the Campaign who wishes to be entered into the Incentive Program must complete a Sponsor pledge form entry or Workplace Giving Portal online pledge form entry (“Entries”).  Entries must include the person’s name, address, telephone number, amount of contribution and signature.  Incomplete, forged, altered, lost, and/or late Entries are void.  All Entries become property of Sponsor and no Entries will be returned.

How to Win
The winners will be selected through a random drawing (“Drawing”) from the Entries. A Drawing will take place for each of the Prizes. The Drawing will be held following the close of the Campaign and the names of each of the winners will be announced soon thereafter. Each of the winners will be notified by telephone or certified mail immediately following verification of the winner’s contribution of their pledge at the phone number or address provided on the potential winner’s Entry. Proper identification will be required upon presentation of one of the Prizes. A potential winner does not need to be present at the time of the Drawing to win one of the Prizes. If Sponsor is unable, after making a reasonable effort to contact a selected potential winner based on the contact information provided on the Entry then that potential winner will be disqualified and a new potential winner will be selected from remaining Entries. A winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected by random drawing from among all remaining Entries if a winner does not fulfill the eligibility requirements or if a winner does not adhere to the Official Rules. Winner hereby agrees that he or she will sign and return any appropriate or required forms and/or documentation relating to the transfer of a Prize. Failure to execute such documentation will result in that winner being disqualified, and Sponsor may randomly draw another winner from among all remaining Entries.
