Samples of the prizes and incentives include a $5,000 Grand Prize to the nonprofit with the most unique donors; $1,000 FCFP Founder Prize to be added to the donation made by the 1,916 donor; $1,000 Checkered Flag Prize to the nonprofit that receives the most gifts between 10:00 p.m.-11:59 p.m., and $1,000 Passionate Giving Prize will be awarded to the nonprofit with the single largest gift during the 30 hour period.
