Increase the Effectiveness of Your Donor Communications with Website Analytics

Pamela Lee is a current GlobalGiving Ambassador for the US West Coast. Our amazing Ambassadors are individuals who work at one of our nonprofit partners that apply to represent GlobalGiving in their respective countries for a year.

How can we most effectively communicate to new potential donors?  A central tenet of today’s marketing is “test and learn”. A case study shows what one can learn from two tools: GlobalGiving’s Website Analytics and bit.ly.

GlobalGiving believes that the most effective organizations are learning organizations and thus our team puts great effort in helping you learn faster by engaging in the continuous cycle of progress: Listening, Acting, Learning, and Repeating. One of the most import cycles is the storytelling one as it is the one feedback tool that can actually lead to receiving more funds and finding more supporters for your project, both here on GlobalGiving and in your work in general.

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!
