The Disaster Feedback Fellows Program is back!

The Disaster Feedback Fellows Program is back!

The 2018 inaugural GlobalGiving Disaster Feedback Fellows program was a huge success and we’re bringing it back again this year! 

We’re inviting GlobalGiving partners working on disaster relief and recovery across the world to apply to be part of the 2019-2020 Disaster Feedback Fellowship program. These 5 fellows will be part of a cohort of 10 frontline practitioners who are currently utilizing feedback practices in their work and will be supported by Feedback Labs for a year-long fellowship to deepen that practice. 

If you’re a GlobalGiving partner working across thematic areas outside the scope of disaster response, you’re eligible to apply to this related Feedback Fellows program. Otherwise, please read on.

How To Succeed In Our 2019 Photo Contest: Top Tips From 2018 Winners

With the right image, you have the power to communicate your organization’s mission to donors in a compelling way. GlobalGiving’s annual Photo Contest gives our nonprofit partners a platform to show off your best shots, spread awareness, and gain new donors! To get you started, here are a few helpful tips from three top finishers in the 2018 Photo Contest:

Anjali Mittal – International Association for Human Values

DO use an image that you created yourself. 

“If you are considering entering the Photo Contest, you have probably been an avid photography hobbyist for some time and have your own personally created library of images. Draw on these images to find inspiration for your non-profit. The same things that inspire you are likely to be reflected in or have motivated your non-profit in some way. Once you find the connection that speaks to you, it will speak to others who may be moved to contribute to your non-profit.”

We asked. You Answered. Here is what we heard.

Over the last several months, we’ve collected feedback from our nonprofit partners about what new tools, features, and improvements you’d like to see on our platform in two different ways. First, late last year, we shared a public-facing product roadmap to collect your ideas about what improvements we should prioritize. Then in March, we sent our annual survey, getting your feedback on everything from our email response times, to our matching campaign design, to our learning tools and resources. We’ve heard from nearly 1,000 of you, and you’ve inspired us with your innovation and thoughtfulness! Here is some of what we heard, and how we are planning to respond (or have already):

Bringing greater visibility to your work  – when we asked “What does GlobalGiving do for your organization”, the most common response, after fundraising support, was related to GlobalGiving bringing greater visibility to your work through our marketing efforts. We are putting even more effort and resources into our marketing efforts this year to make sure we can continue to bring more eyes and dollars to your projects!
