Incentive Prizing

Will the money I’ve raised for the general Extra Life 2020 campaign count towards unlocking Extra Life United incentives?

No. The only way to unlock Extra Life United incentives is to raise funds during the active fundraising period of Extra Life United (ending April 12, 2020). You must create an Extra Life United page at and receive funds on that page.

How long can I try to raise money during Extra Life United to win prizes?

Funds can be raised from 3/25/20 – 4/12/20. After that, funds will not count towards unlocking prizing (but will, of course, still help your local hospital!)

Will my tournament winnings count towards unlocking prizing?

No. Although tournament winnings will be applied to your page after the conclusion of Extra Life United, they will not be credited towards incentive prizing.

Why do I have to create a new fundraising page?

The first thing you’ll about Extra Life United: Online Edition is that we had to create a new registration process to capture people’s information and intent to participate in Extra Life United. The site is the end result of some late nights and hard work as the Extra Life team redesigned the end-user experience to welcome everyone old and new to the event. Have no fear, if you’re an Extra Life veteran, you can still choose which children’s hospital you’d like to support and all of your lifetime fundraising stats will include any donations you win / receive from your Extra Life United activities!

Offline donations will not be accepted for Extra Life United.

Will there still be a Hackathon?

Yes! Tune in at 1pm EST on April 8 to see our top four finalists share their “big ideas” to take Extra Life to the next level. Learn more here.
