Announcing Changes to the GlobalGiving Dashboard!

Announcing Changes to the GlobalGiving Dashboard!

One of GlobalGiving’s core values is to Listen, Act, Learn. Repeat. This means continuously listening to the feedback you, our nonprofit partners, provide us and constantly trying new ways to provide a better experience for everyone. With that in mind, we have heard your feedback regarding the Project Entry system and we are excited to announce that we have launched a new and improved dashboard!

What’s New?

We have changed the set-up of the old Project Entry system to be more of a complete summary of your GlobalGiving projects all in one place! You will be able to see recent activity for all your projects as well as a overall donor numbers and amounts raised. To help you explore this new tool, we have created this webinar as a introductory tour to your new dashboard!

For the next few weeks, we will keep a button at the top of your dashboard so you can switch back and forth between the new and old systems to give you time to transition. If you have any feedback or questions, please do not hesitate to reach out! We are happy to help!

Announcing the 2018 Little by Little Campaign!

Announcing the 2018 Little by Little Campaign!

Here at GlobalGiving we know there’s strength in numbers and that small donations add up to BIG change. That’s why we run the Little by Little Matching Campaign!

Everything about this week-long campaign, from April 9th to 13th,  is designed to help celebrate the power of your crowd. So get ready for GlobalGiving to match donations up to $50 at 50% while the $50,000 in matching funds remain. Last year, funds lasted until the final day of the campaign. What happens this year depends on you!

At the end of the week, there will be $3,000 in bonus prizes for the top five fundraising projects. There will also be a 100% match for new recurring donations started during this week!

If your organization is a Partner, Leader, or Superstar, there is no need to fill anything out – just start planning your strategy and we’ll take care of the rest. Start thinking about who you’ll reach out to – current donors, former donors, prospective donors?

We say, go for all of the above! And, keep in mind, high-dollar donors often to start off as small-dollar donors. Start mapping your networks, recruiting your fundraising advocates, and crafting your thank you plan. It’s so important to treat every donor like a million dollar donor!

Make sure to watch the recorded session of our Little by Little webinar to learn more! As always, if you have a question, you can send us an email at projecthelp@globalgiving.org or give us a call at +1 (202) 232-5784.

It’s time to announce GlobalGiving’s Seventh Annual Video Contest!

It’s time to announce GlobalGiving’s Seventh Annual Video Contest!

In a world where video is all the rage, the GlobalGiving team is eager to see your most recent productions! There’s just no match for the power that video has to build quick intrigue, trust, and connection. The medium has recently been described by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as a “megatrend, almost as big as mobile.”

What we’ve been most excited to watch here at GlobalGiving is the ever-lowering barriers for creating quality video content. It has never been easier or cheaper for nonprofits to captivate audiences with bold visual storytelling. That makes us more excited than ever to watch your submissions!

This year, the Top 10 videos will win GlobalGiving social media promotion and get featured in a GlobalGiving Learn article. Last year’s winner feature was one of GlobalGiving’s highest viewed pieces of content, proving the irresistible nature of visual content.

The top grand prize winning video will also receive a solo feature in a GlobalGiving’s newsletter which gets sent to tens of thousands of engaged donors from around the world. In previous years, this feature has raised the winning project anywhere from $2,000 to $13,000.

Since it’s getting harder and harder to distinguish between amateurs and professionals in the world of video, this year we’re asking YOU to reveal how your video came about. That’s because we’re offering additional promotion + learning opportunities to videos created by our many impressive non-professional videographers out there!  

What are you waiting for? Submit your video entry before the Friday, February 23rd deadline and read the full Terms + Conditions below!
