Introducing GlobalGiving’s Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program!

Introducing GlobalGiving’s Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program!

We have heard your feedback and request for us to build additional ways for you to learn from your peers. With that in mind, we are excited to introduce the GlobalGiving Mentoring Program! This program will allow you to connect with your fellow nonprofit partners and learn from their expertise! You can either sign up for one-time call with our mentors on a topic that interests you or you can create a longer-term relationship with your mentor. It’s up to you!

We have four amazing GlobalGiving partners who are here to mentor you through your fundraising journey and help your organization become more successful. Here are the four topics you can now receive assistance on through a mentoring consultation:

GlobalGiving & Impact Guru Partnership!

GlobalGiving & Impact Guru Partnership!

The last two years have been an immense learning experience for GlobalGiving in India. In 2015, we decided to venture out into this vast country and truly live one of our core values: Listen, Act, Learn, Repeat.

Listen: What did we hear from our partners?

In 2016 for the very first time we recruited, trained and sent out 8 Indian Field travelers to 20 states across the country to visit around 100 of our 220+ Indian nonprofit partners. Through this team we did an in depth needs assessment among our Indian partners to identify how GlobalGiving could help them better. Amongst the many needs and ideas shared by our partners one stood out. 72% of the organisations that participated in the assessment stated that giving their donors a single and central platform for making donations from various countries and being able to provide their local supporters with Indian tax deductions could support them in improving their ability to crowdfund.

This World Refugee Day, We Look to Syrians

This World Refugee Day, We Look to Syrians

Today, the UN estimates 11 million Syrians are displaced both inside and outside of their home country. This makes Syrians the largest refugee population in the world, and there are tragically no signs of this civil war slowing down.

GlobalGiving is steadfast in its commitment to support our nonprofit partners in providing urgent humanitarian assistance to the men, women, and children of Syria, whether they remain in the country or have escaped across borders.

That is why for World Refugee Day on Tuesday, June 20th, from 9:00am EDT to 11:59pm EDT, GlobalGiving is putting up $50,000 in matching funds and $4,000 in bonus prizes for our nonprofit partners playing a critical role in the Syrian refugee relief efforts.
