World Food Day

World Food Day

According to the United Nations, 1 in every 9 people go to bed hungry. Millions are living on the brink of starvation across East Africa, Yemen, and north-east Nigeria. Reaching #ZeroHunger is possible and could save millions of lives each year.

Our partners are responding to food insecurity through emergency feeding programs in South Sudan, mobile applications for farmers in Guatemala, and everything in between. GlobalGiving is committed to standing with our nonprofit community and supporting the efforts of these organizations around the world with a focus on the famines in Africa.

That is why for World Food Day on Monday, October 16th, 2017, from 9:00:01am EDT to 11:59:59pm EDT, GlobalGiving is putting up $20,000 in matching funds and $2,000 in bonus prizes for our nonprofit partners responding to the drought in Africa. Eligible projects must be tagged for the “Africa Drought and Famine Fund” on GlobalGiving and approved by GlobalGiving staff as supporting drought or famine relief in South Sudan, Yemen, Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, or north-east Nigeria.

Announcing Giving Week!

Announcing Giving Week!

You are invited to celebrate the GlobalGiving community during Giving Week (October 2-6)! Come celebrate the knowledge and visibility you’ve gained, the connections you’ve made, and the additional funds you’ve raised by being a part of this powerful community.

One of the biggest ways GlobalGiving gives back to you is through fundraising campaigns. So, please mark your calendars for Thursday’s Bonus Day on October 5th! On this day, organizations will compete for a share of the $50,000 Incentive Fund. Your share will be determined by what percentage of the total funds your organization raises on Bonus Day.

For example, if your organization raises 5% of the total dollars raised on Bonus Day, you will be awarded 5% – or $2,500 – of the Incentive Fund. This means that donations will count throughout the entire day!

There will also be six bonus prizes for top performing organizations in terms of funds raised and unique donors secured. See Terms + Conditions below for complete information. The week will kick off with an announcement of our Inaugural Top 10 List – will your organization be a winner? Chime in on Facebook to find out!

Introducing GlobalGiving’s Top 10 List!

It’s the second anniversary of GG Rewards, so we’re celebrating nonprofits in the GlobalGiving community that have demonstrated the greatest commitment to effectiveness! As you probably know, GlobalGiving believes people and organizations who Listen, Act, Learn. Repeat are the most effective, and we measure your effectiveness through GG Rewards. This September we’ll launch a Top 10 List of organizations with the most Effectiveness Points!

If you have completed at least one Effectiveness Cycle on GG Rewards by August 18th, your organization will be eligible to be named in the GlobalGiving Top 10 Nonprofits Committed To Impact. Our inaugural List will feature the ten organizations with the most Effectiveness Points, and we’ll also highlight five honorable mentions—organizations whose submitted cycles make us say, “wow!”

We’ll promote the Top 10 List throughout our site and with our partners and also provide winners with digital badges and promotional materials! Winners will also receive award grants; $1,000 for the first place winner, and $500 for the others, including honorable mentions! So take a minute to check in with GG Rewards, complete any unfinished cycles, and share your “Listen, Act, Learn. Repeat.” stories with us today!
