Announcing the 2018 Little by Little Campaign!

Announcing the 2018 Little by Little Campaign!

Here at GlobalGiving we know there’s strength in numbers and that small donations add up to BIG change. That’s why we run the Little by Little Matching Campaign!

Everything about this week-long campaign, from April 9th to 13th,  is designed to help celebrate the power of your crowd. So get ready for GlobalGiving to match donations up to $50 at 50% while the $50,000 in matching funds remain. Last year, funds lasted until the final day of the campaign. What happens this year depends on you!

At the end of the week, there will be $3,000 in bonus prizes for the top five fundraising projects. There will also be a 100% match for new recurring donations started during this week!

If your organization is a Partner, Leader, or Superstar, there is no need to fill anything out – just start planning your strategy and we’ll take care of the rest. Start thinking about who you’ll reach out to – current donors, former donors, prospective donors?

We say, go for all of the above! And, keep in mind, high-dollar donors often to start off as small-dollar donors. Start mapping your networks, recruiting your fundraising advocates, and crafting your thank you plan. It’s so important to treat every donor like a million dollar donor!

Make sure to watch the recorded session of our Little by Little webinar to learn more! As always, if you have a question, you can send us an email at or give us a call at +1 (202) 232-5784.

At GlobalGiving, we understand the role girls have in changing our world for the better, and we want to provide them the resources to do so. That’s why last year we launched the GlobalGiving Girl Fund, to support outstanding projects that strive to provide greater opportunities to women and girls.

The 2018 GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign is your chance to be a part of the 2018 Girl Fund cohort! The Girl Fund consists of six (6) GlobalGiving projects that are committed to providing opportunities for girls, each project receiving a share of the fund every month from April to December.

Your project can win a spot in the 2018 Girl Fund in one of two ways:

  1. Secure one of the top four spots in terms of unique donors on the GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign running March 1st – March 15th..
  2. Submit one of two winning Effectiveness Cycles between February 15th and March 15th.

Additionally, there will be a special bonus day on International Women’s Day, Thursday, March 8th, exclusively for projects participating in the campaign. On this day, there will be $8,000 in matching funds and $2,000 in bonus prizes!

Check out the webinar recording for a breakdown of all the campaign and bonus day details.

So, if your project works to empower girls or young womenbe it through after school leadership programs, robotics summer camp, or menstrual health resources it’s time to sign up for the GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign!

#GivingTuesday Rebuild Together: An Exclusive GlobalGiving Matching Campaign

#GivingTuesday Rebuild Together: An Exclusive GlobalGiving Matching Campaign

In these last few months, multiple disasters have taken a brutal toll on millions of people around the world. Hurricane Harvey has submerged neighborhoods in Texas, nearly 400 people have died from earthquakes in Mexico, and hurricanes Maria and Irma have devastated infrastructure and limited access to safe drinking water, fuel, and emergency medical care in the US and the Caribbean.

Fortunately, our amazing nonprofit partners are responding in the face of almost unfathomable destruction by tirelessly bringing relief to those in need. Our partners have worked with local governments in the Caribbean to distribute aid that was clogged at the port, provided fuel for generators so that hospitals could operate in Puerto Rico, and built transitional housing for victims in Mexico.

Given the massive scope of damage, recovery efforts will continue for months and, in some areas, years. Luckily, GlobalGiving nonprofit partners and donors are in it for the long haul. We have seen the inherent goodness of people from every corner of the world, eager to help those in need. #GivingTuesday is the perfect day to capture this wave of generosity and ensure that your organizations can continue to support people in need of long-term recovery.

Announcing GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign!

Announcing GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign!

Year-end giving is the biggest fundraising season for many nonprofits all over the world. Nearly one third of all annual giving occurs in December alone, while 12% happens in just the last three days of the year. GlobalGiving is here to make sure this is your strongest year-end fundraising season yet!!

GlobalGiving’s 2017 Year-End Campaign will offer $10,000 in total prize money! Prizes vary in size and will be awarded throughout the Year-End Campaign as well at the end of the campaign. Will your organizations be the first to get 50 donors? Raise the most dollars? Get spotlighted for being in the top 5% of participants? We certainly hope so!  

All Active Partner, Leader, and Superstar projects will be automatically included in the campaign and on the leaderboard. See Terms and Conditions below for complete prize breakdown and eligibility.

We’ll also be giving away GlobalGiving Certificates for fundraising success, GlobalGiving homepage time, and customized social media graphics. See Terms & Conditions below to find out how you can win!

Lastly, throughout the whole campaign new recurring donations up to $200 per donor per project will get an additional 100% match on the initial donation (as long as it remains active for three months.)

Now is a great time to start preparing. Check out the Year-End Fundraising page and reach out with any questions!

Make This Year’s #GivingTuesday Count: All Donors, All Day, All Donations!

Make This Year’s #GivingTuesday Count: All Donors, All Day, All Donations!

Last year #GivingTuesday was a record breaker, raising over $168 million dollars for charitable organizations all over the world. Here at GlobalGiving, we know the importance of this day, no matter where you’re located. That’s why this #GivingTuesday, we’re making all donors, all day, all donations count.

Starting at midnight EDT on Tuesday, November 28th and running all day, projects will be competing for a portion of $75,000 Incentive Fund. Your share of the fund will be determined by what percentage of the total fund your organization raises on Giving Tuesday. For example, if your organization raises 5% of the total dollars raised on Giving Tuesday, you will be awarded 5% – or $3,750 – of the Incentive Fund. This means that all donations from all donors will count all day!

There will also be $25,000 in Bonus Prizes to compete for on #GivingTuesday awarded to the top 14 performing organizations with the most funds raised and most unique donors. See Terms + Conditions below for breakdown and eligibility of bonus prizes.

Finally, there will be a 100% match on all recurring donations started on #GivingTuesday up to $200. The initial donation will count towards your total funds raised on the 28th. As always, feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

We’re just five weeks out from #GivingTuesday, start your preparations today!
