Templates to Use for Your Final Year-End Fundraising Push!

Templates to Use for Your Final Year-End Fundraising Push!

Did you know that 12% of annual giving occurs during the last three days of the year? And that almost a third of nonprofits raise between 26 and 50% of their annual funds just from their year-end ask? We don’t want you to miss out, so with just four days remaining, we are here to help you mobilize your base of supporters!

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!

One GlobalGiving Website is almost here!

One GlobalGiving Website is almost here!

We’re sure you’ve heard, but just to remind you, beginning January 10th, 2017, we will be launching ONE website, simplifying the GlobalGiving experience for donors and nonprofits alike!

We listened to your feedback that it’s confusing to have different campaigns on two separate platforms (GlobalGiving.org and GlobalGiving.co.uk), customer service run by two separate teams, and two different project pages for your donors to give (in USD or GBP). We are making a change that will benefit all organizations that are part of the entire GlobalGiving community!  

Disbursement Tool to Track Your Fundraising!

Disbursement Tool to Track Your Fundraising!

It’s the end of the year which means we are in the middle of giving season! We just completed our historic #MatchAMillion #GivingTuesday campaign where we matched $1 million dollars with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and we know you are all hard at work making your last fundraising push for the year.

With all this year end fundraising, it is super important for your organization to be able to track all the donations that come in, as well as bonus funds and corporate campaign money. Which is why GlobalGiving has rolled out a new disbursement tool to help you see all funds your organization has raised!

Year-End Giving and Corporate Partners!

Year-end giving is in the air!  It’s also that time of year that our corporate partners join in the holiday spirit by giving GlobalGiving charitable gift cards to their employees, customers, and networks.

Your projects are eligible to receive corporate gift cards! Last year, GlobalGiving’s corporate partners purchased about $1,300,000 in gift cards during the holiday season alone. They use gift cards to motivate or reward employees and thank their clients. More than 1,300 nonprofit organizations received at least one of these gift cards. This season we expect even more corporate partner gift cards – meaning more than enough to go around supporting great, global programs, like yours!

10 Tips for Accelerator Participants!

10 Tips for Accelerator Participants!

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?
