Introducing the Little by Little Campaign!

Introducing the Little by Little Campaign!

Here at GlobalGiving we know there is strength in numbers and that small donations add up to big change. That is why this April we are introducing the Little by Little Matching Campaign to all Partners, Leaders, and Superstars.

Get ready to celebrate the power of small donations and the power of your crowd!

During the week of April 3rd to 7th, GlobalGiving will be matching donations up to $50 at 50% while the $50,000 in matching funds remain. 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 200% match for new recurring donations started during this week!

Introducing the GlobalGiving Girl Fund

Introducing the GlobalGiving Girl Fund

GlobalGiving believes that every girl deserves a chance to realize her full potential, and we know you do too! That’s why we started the GlobalGiving Girl Fund — so we could provide ongoing support to projects that are dedicated to helping women and girls around the world thrive.

The GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign is an opportunity for projects focused on women and girls to participate in a two-week fundraising campaign, earn GG Rewards points, and compete for a spot in the 2017 GlobalGiving Girl Fund. Six projects will earn a spot in the fund along with an exclusive banner on their project page and guaranteed funding. Historically, GlobalGiving fund recipients have received up to $1,500 per month.

Every GlobalGiving partner with a project supporting women and/or girls has a chance to compete for one of these six spots! So how do you get started? Fill out this short form by February 24 to join us for the GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign! Then, mobilize your donor network and demonstrate your work through an effectiveness cycle to earn a spot in the fund!

Donations Matched 100% to Italy  Earthquake Recovery Projects!

Donations Matched 100% to Italy Earthquake Recovery Projects!

As we come up on the six month anniversary of the Italy Earthquake in August 2016, we are reminded of the destruction Italy shouldered during the 6.2 magnitude quake last year. The most recent 5.4 magnitude earthquake and extreme weather conditions makes the original relief efforts for the August 2016 earthquake even more difficult. However, we are encouraged by our partners’ dedication to rebuilding the cities, towns, and lives destroyed beyond the first sixth months of relief efforts. To support your ongoing commitment to Italy recovery, GlobalGiving will match donations to your Italy recovery projects at 100% starting February 24th, 2017.

If you have programs that were impacted, be sure to post a project that is tagged as “disaster recovery” and mentions the earthquake in Italy in August 2016, although your project can be, and most likely will be, inclusive of the most recent earthquake and aftershocks. You project must be tagged and approved by February 21st, 2017 to be eligible. You must also be Partner, Leader, or Superstar status on GlobalGiving.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Here at GlobalGiving we believe in the power of stories. And, in today’s digital world, it is more important than ever for nonprofits to be able to both tell and show their stories. That is why we are excited to announce our sixth annual Video Contest!

Each year our team has the pleasure of watching your inspiring videos and every year the judging gets harder! In 2017, we’ll select one grand prize winner and four runner-ups to be promoted in GlobalGiving’s outreach to donors.

The grand prize winner will also be featured in GlobalGiving’s monthly donor newsletter which is sent to more than 170,000 subscribers! Past video contest winners have received upwards of $6,000 in donations because of this promotion. And every participant benefits by receiving one GG Rewards point for simply entering the contest!
