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!

This World Refugee Day, We Look to Syrians

This World Refugee Day, We Look to Syrians

Today, the UN estimates 11 million Syrians are displaced both inside and outside of their home country. This makes Syrians the largest refugee population in the world, and there are tragically no signs of this civil war slowing down.

GlobalGiving is steadfast in its commitment to support our nonprofit partners in providing urgent humanitarian assistance to the men, women, and children of Syria, whether they remain in the country or have escaped across borders.

That is why for World Refugee Day on Tuesday, June 20th, from 9:00am EDT to 11:59pm EDT, GlobalGiving is putting up $50,000 in matching funds and $4,000 in bonus prizes for our nonprofit partners playing a critical role in the Syrian refugee relief efforts.

Nepal Earthquake Relief Projects Matched at 50%

Nepal Earthquake Relief Projects Matched at 50%

Two years ago, on April 25, 2015 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake violently shook Nepal just outside the capital of Kathmandu and sent devastating shocks through surrounding areas. Local GlobalGiving nonprofit partners and aid organizations immediately stepped up to start the recovery process to rebuild and repair lives in Nepal. The long-term relief process is still ongoing and vitally important.

On the two-year anniversary of the earthquake, in honor of the lives impacted by the destruction and GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners dedicated to the relief effort, GlobalGiving is matching donations at 50% starting 09:00 a.m. EDT on April 25, 2017 (18:45 p.m. NPT on April 25, 2017) until 23:59:59 p.m. EST on December 31, 2017 – while funds last. Also, for the first 24 hours of the campaign, organizations are competing for $3,000 in cash bonus prizes!  The bonus prizes will award most donors and most funds raised. Donations will be matched up to $1,000 USD per donor, and each organization participating is eligible to receive up to $20,000 USD in matching funds.

100% Match Campaign for Kumamoto Earthquake One-Year Anniversary

100% Match Campaign for Kumamoto Earthquake One-Year Anniversary

In April 2016, a series of earthquakes, including one of 7.0 magnitude, struck Kumamoto, Japan  causing landslides and catastrophe. Thousands were injured and numerous buildings were destroyed. GlobalGiving partners were there to respond immediately providing water, first aid, and rescue to survivors. Donors on GlobalGiving jumped in to support our partners’ efforts. To date, more than 2,000 donors from around the world have come together to support the ongoing recovery efforts in Kumamoto.

Our partners have continued to stick by Kumamoto citizens providing long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts. To support these long-term earthquake recovery projects, GlobalGiving will be matching donations 100% in honor of the one-year anniversary. The 100% match opportunity begins on April 13, 2017 at 11:00:00 a.m. EDT. The campaign will end at 23:59:59 p.m. EST on December 31,2017 or when funds run out, whichever comes first.
