Leaderboards on the site will track organizations raising the most money; The top five on each leaderboard at the end of the 24-hour period will win additional cash prizes.
Golden tickets, or mini-grants, will also be awarded to organizations throughout the day as incentives.

"Thanks to generous Kentuckians and the hard work of Kentucky's nonprofits, we raised over $330,000 in our inaugural year," said Danielle Clore, executive director of the nonprofit network. "Online giving is an important fundraising tool for nonprofits — affordable, efficient and growing. We look forward to continuing our momentum into 2014 and helping even more charities use this tool to raise funds to serve their communities."
