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!

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!

If you haven’t yet reached out to your supporters; if you have and they haven’t been donating as you had hoped; or if you just need a jump start on one last bit of outreach, we have crafted this short email template and Facebook post below to help get you started!

Congrats to our Fail Forward Winners!

Congrats to our Fail Forward Winners!

October was a month of celebrating failure with our third annual Fail Forward Contest! Throughout the month we witnessed the power of reframing failure as an opportunity to make positive change, and we reflected on the benefits of sharing setbacks with donors, internal teams, and local communities. Most importantly, we had the honor of hearing how all of the 2016 Fail Forward Contest participants proudly failed forward. You blew us away!

We were so inspired by all your fail forward stories and by the resilience, perseverance, and teamwork in your organizations.  This year we had a record number of submissions, and we are excited to introduce you to the 2016 winners and finalists! And the winners of $1000, $600, and $400 are…
