The New Community Engagement Team at GlobalGiving!

The New Community Engagement Team at GlobalGiving!

At GlobalGiving, we love the opportunity to be able to support all our amazing nonprofit partners located all over the world. Whether it is through an online chat, a phone call, or an email, our staff love the opportunity to hear about the amazing work you are doing and find out the ways we can best assist! In an effort to grow that support system even more for our partners, we have created the Community Engagement Team focused on ensuring your GlobalGiving experience is an amazing one!

So let’s meet the people you will be interacting with through your GlobalGiving journey! First, we have two new fellows to welcome to the team!

 

Andrew Denu

Andrew is excited to work with nonprofit leaders around the world by helping them share their innovative projects in the GlobalGiving community improve their fundraising and social impact capabilities. His passion for sustainable international development stem from his agricultural work in Uganda with a grassroots nonprofit organization called Village Health Project. Andrew grew up in the Midwest and attended University of Wisconsin-Madison for global health and biology.

 

Sonja Knudson

Sonja is excited to be able to help project leaders harness the power of the GlobalGiving community. Before joining GlobalGiving, Sonja received a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Latin from Tufts University. Sonja’s passion for nonprofit work grew exponentially in college through her student advocacy work to end global health inequities.

 

The final two members of this new team are two permanent staff positions. First we have Miranda!

Miranda Cleland

Miranda shares inspiring stories from GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners, run’s GlobalGiving’s social media accounts, and strives to connect donors and nonprofits in the GlobalGiving community. She is a recent graduate of American University where she studied international relations and Arabic. Miranda has been a GlobalGiver from many angles—she is a former intern, and a nonprofit project leader for Aid Afghanistan for Education.

 

And finally, myself!

Emily JamesI have had the pleasure of working with all of you for the past year and a half and cannot wait to continue! Whether it be through phone calls, emails or one-on-one consultation, it is so exciting to be able to help all our amazing nonprofit partners all over the world. Please make sure to reach out to this new team and say hello! We are here to help! 🙂

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!  

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!
