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:

Introducing Project Appeals

Introducing Project Appeals

It may seem obvious that an individual who has donated to your organization before is more likely to contribute again. What you may not have realized is that one-third of online donations are made in direct response to email appeals! With this in mind – and based on the valuable feedback of nonprofit partners like you – we’ve developed a tool to make it even easier for you to ask your GlobalGiving donors to contribute to your projects.

GlobalGiving is thrilled to introduce project appeals, a fundraising email that you can send to all donors who have ever contributed to your organization through GlobalGiving!

Creamos is a new partner of GlobalGiving having just finished the September Accelerator program. Creamos aims to improve women’s lives in Guatemala through various income-generating and welfare initiatives that foster self-esteem, physical health and financial independence. They raised the most money in the Accelerator campaign and they have shared the following insights with us. 

Here in Creamos we are a small team of five. Before the accelerator program, none of us had any experience in crowd funding. We had so many questions entering the campaign – Where do we start? How are we going to ask people for money? How are we going to balance the campaign with our actual work?
