Introducing the Little by Little Campaign!

Introducing the Little by Little Campaign!

Here at GlobalGiving we know there is strength in numbers and that small donations add up to big change. That is why this April we are introducing the Little by Little Matching Campaign to all Partners, Leaders, and Superstars.

Get ready to celebrate the power of small donations and the power of your crowd!

During the week of April 3rd to 7th, GlobalGiving will be matching donations up to $50 at 50% while the $50,000 in matching funds remain. 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 200% match for new recurring donations started during this week!

GlobalGiving has HUGE News!

GlobalGiving has HUGE News!

We are less than four weeks away from #GivingTuesday and we have some exciting news to share! The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has generously provided $500,000 in matching funds for #GivingTuesday!

There will be an unprecedented 50% matching for #GivingTuesday donations up to the first $1 million raised! This is the largest amount of matching funds GlobalGiving has ever had in one day in order to match more donations than ever before!

In addition to this huge matching opportunity, all new recurring donations made from #GivingTuesday through December 31st will be matched at 200% up to $100, on the fourth donation!

2016 Fail Forward Contest

2016 Fail Forward Contest

Ashlee Cox is a current Program Team Fellow and author of this blog post. 

Bill Gates’ first company failed to sell any products, JK Rowling was initially rejected from twelve publishers, a young Amitabh Bachchan was turned down for a job at All India Radio, and staff from 2015 Fail Forward contest winner Sumando Manos Foundation spent four years attempting to find  a solution to malnutrition in a remote Argentinian village.

What do all these success stories have in common? When they failed, they failed forward.

Failure is a word that many of us shy away from, but failing forward is a practice that allows you to examine, share, and critically think about how you can build upon your failures to fuel future success for your organization. As the 2016 Fail Forward Contest approaches, we want to change the way failure is perceived and encourage you to share your Fail Forward stories!

Time for Year-End Fundraising!

Time for Year-End Fundraising!

It’s that time of year again – time to plan for year-end fundraising! This is a critical period for your organization to increase its donations as more than one third of donations in the US happens in the last six weeks of the year! We are here to make sure you make the most of this important time for fundraising.

Why is Year-End Fundraising important?

More than $7.8 million was donated through GlobalGiving in just 31 days last year! Why? December is the final month for donors to make tax-deductible donations for the year, and many corporations use charitable gift cards as a holiday gift to their employees. GlobalGiving has the most visitors to our site in the last quarter of the year, so it is a perfect time to attract new donors to give to your project!
