September Fundraiser Campaign

Posted by Alexis Nadin on July 22nd, 2013

This September, we’re hosting GlobalGiving’s first-ever Fundraiser Campaign, designed to help you harness the fundraising potential of your supporters using GlobalGiving’s fundraiser tool. We’ll be offering awesome prizes (JetBlue tickets, a flip cam, and more!) for your supporters who create fundraiser pages and raise money on your behalf. We’ll also be offering $3,500 in financial bonus awards to the organizations with the most successful fundraisers!

The GlobalGiving fundraiser tool makes it easy for YOUR supporters to raise money on your behalf! The tool empowers your supporters set their own fundraising goals, reach out to family and friends, and track their fundraising progress.

Last year, our tech team made some snazzy improvements to the fundraiser tool, making it even more attractive and fun to use! Check out this great example from Jacqueline’s birthday fundraiser:

Fundraiser Example

Jacqueline isn’t alone. Over the years, we’ve had individuals create fundraiser pages to celebrate nuptials, commemorate an athletic event, or just to support their favorite cause.

We know that fundraisers are a powerful tool for raising money on GlobalGiving. The Fundraiser Campaign was created to help you motivate your supporters to create a fundraiser page and raise funds for your organization this September.

How does it work?

  1. You identify supporters in your network who are passionate about your cause and ask them to create a fundraiser page.
  2. Your supporters create a fundraiser page on GlobalGiving.
  3. Fundraisers that raise at least $500 from at least 10 donors receive an additional $50 match for the project from GlobalGiving and become eligible for prizes—JetBlue tickets, flip cam, and more!
  4. The top three organizations with the most fundraisers that raise at least $500 from 10 donors will win bonus awards of $2,000, $1,000, and $500 respectively.

    Dear GlobalGiving Management,

    I am a new volunteer at a Vietnamese non-profit tasked with supporting the organization’s September GlobalGiving campaign. I just discovered that the fundraiser campaign webinar took place this past Tuesday, August 6th. I’m wondering if a recording of the webinar might exist that I could watch in preparation for our campaign.

    Many thanks in advance!
