The Disaster Feedback Fellows Program is back!

The Disaster Feedback Fellows Program is back!

The 2018 inaugural GlobalGiving Disaster Feedback Fellows program was a huge success and we’re bringing it back again this year! 

We’re inviting GlobalGiving partners working on disaster relief and recovery across the world to apply to be part of the 2019-2020 Disaster Feedback Fellowship program. These 5 fellows will be part of a cohort of 10 frontline practitioners who are currently utilizing feedback practices in their work and will be supported by Feedback Labs for a year-long fellowship to deepen that practice. 

If you’re a GlobalGiving partner working across thematic areas outside the scope of disaster response, you’re eligible to apply to this related Feedback Fellows program. Otherwise, please read on.

New Feature Helps Donors Subscribe To Your Nonprofit’s Newsletter!

New Feature Helps Donors Subscribe To Your Nonprofit’s Newsletter!

Nonprofit partners have been telling GlobalGiving for years: “We want GlobalGiving donors to be able to opt into our email newsletters!” Well, after hearing your feedback loud and clear and brainstorming solutions, we’re happy to say that this feature is now live!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Add your direct newsletter sign-up link to your organization’s dashboard by clicking “Edit Org Info” and adding the link on the first tab under “Email Signup Link.”
  2. GlobalGiving will add that link to email templates for project reports, thank you notes, and project appeals.
  3. Donors can click directly on the link to subscribe to your email list!

We thought through several solutions and ultimately decided alongside our nonprofit partners that this solution both respects donors’ privacy and engages your most committed supporters. As always, if you have any questions, send us an email, and share your feedback on the product roadmap!

Calling All Animal Lovers This May!

WHAT: Paws + Claws is a one-day matching campaign designed to celebrate animal-themed projects by matching donations up to $500 at 30% with $15,000 in matching funds and $5,000 in bonus prizes.

WHY: Here at GlobalGiving we know everyone needs a little help sometimes, including our animal friends. That’s why, on Biological Diversity Day,  we’re running the Paws + Claws Campaign.

Active projects and microprojects with the primary or secondary theme of  ‘animals’ will be automatically included. The deadline to submit new projects for inclusion in this campaign is Friday, May 17th.

Leading up to the campaign, approvals of project reports, project edits, and project appeals will take 1-3 business days to process.
