Listening to You: Results from the Nonprofit Partner Survey

Listening to You: Results from the Nonprofit Partner Survey

You’re probably used to it by now – every quarter, we at GlobalGiving send out a survey to get your feedback. We do this because we want to hear what you have to say, the good, the bad, and the ugly, so that we can ultimately serve you, our nonprofit partners, better in the programs that we run, the technology that we develop, and the services that we provide!

As you know, one of our core values at GlobalGiving is Listen, Act, Learn. Repeat. Surveying is one such way that we listen to you so that we can act in accordance with the needs, challenges, and priorities that resonate most. We are excited to share this overview of the top-line results, in addition to how we plan to act based on the feedback that we’ve received.

From May 15th to 26th, we released the 2017 GlobalGiving Nonprofit Partner Annual Survey, a long-form version of our quarterly survey, in which we asked you to answer key questions and topics related to the GlobalGiving experience. During the 12-day period during which the survey was open, 626 nonprofit partners responded. Of these, 55% were Superstars, 32% were Leaders, and 11.5% were Partners. (The remainder were organizations which are new to the platform.)

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!

Are YOU Ready for Youth Week?

Are YOU Ready for Youth Week?

Today, youth make up 16% of the world’s population, the largest ever in history. Children around the world experience extreme poverty, child marriage and prostitution, internal displacement, increased risk of HIV/AIDS, and so many other challenges. Nevertheless, young people everywhere continue to act as community leaders and peacemakers. That is why the International Youth Day 2017 theme is Youth Building Peace to recognize the youth efforts in creating sustainable change. Every day our children give us hope for a better future and a reason to fight for it. This year GlobalGiving wants to celebrate our partners working with our future and we are excited to launch the  International Youth Week Campaign!

This August, all projects that work with youth qualify for the week-long campaign.  Starting at 9:00am EDT on Monday, August 7th, and running until 11:59pm EDT on International Youth Day, Saturday, August 12th, GlobalGiving will have $13,000 in matching funds available applied at 100% on all eligible donations up to $250. Additionally, there is a 100% match on all recurring donations started during the campaign week (up to $250). GlobalGiving will also be giving out $2,000 worth of bonus prizes to the top 3 projects with the most funds raised and top 3 projects with the most unique donors!

GlobalGiving & Impact Guru Partnership!

GlobalGiving & Impact Guru Partnership!

The last two years have been an immense learning experience for GlobalGiving in India. In 2015, we decided to venture out into this vast country and truly live one of our core values: Listen, Act, Learn, Repeat.

Listen: What did we hear from our partners?

In 2016 for the very first time we recruited, trained and sent out 8 Indian Field travelers to 20 states across the country to visit around 100 of our 220+ Indian nonprofit partners. Through this team we did an in depth needs assessment among our Indian partners to identify how GlobalGiving could help them better. Amongst the many needs and ideas shared by our partners one stood out. 72% of the organisations that participated in the assessment stated that giving their donors a single and central platform for making donations from various countries and being able to provide their local supporters with Indian tax deductions could support them in improving their ability to crowdfund.
