Calling All Climate Champions To Apply

WHAT: The 2020 Climate Action Campaign is a chance for you to win one of five year-long slots in the GlobalGiving Climate Action Fund, earn matching funds,  energize your power base, and connect with your peers in the broader GlobalGiving community working to protect people, planet, and place from climate chaos.

The Climate Action Fund consists of hundreds of donors committed to supporting grassroots climate champions in the fight to protect our planet and adapt to its changing realities. For one year, the winning cohort selected from this campaign will each receive an estimated $10,000 or more from the fund over the next twelve months. 

WHY: The global climate crisis demands it. This campaign will demonstrate the abundance of solutions to the crisis at hand through a mosaic of climate solutions in action around the world in the GlobalGiving community. 

WHEN: The campaign will run for five days from April 20 – 24 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22. Throughout the week, all eligible donations up to $500 will be matched at 50%

Apply For The 2020 Girl Fund Campaign

Apply For The 2020 Girl Fund Campaign

WHAT: The GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign is your chance to win one of eight year-long slots in the GlobalGiving Girl Fund. The Girl Fund consists of hundreds of donors committed to supporting GlobalGiving’s top tier organizations working to advance women’s equality around the world. For one year, the winning cohort from this campaign will receive between $10,000-$15,000 total from the Girl Fund.

WHY: Despite progress in recent years, girls continue to suffer disadvantages and exclusion in education, self-development, and job markets. Women complete 70% of the world’s working hours, but receive only 10% of the world’s income. This campaign is the perfect opportunity to promote and fundraise for your project that works for girls’ and women’s empowerment.

WHO: Everyone in the GlobalGiving community can apply to this campaign. GlobalGiving will review projects and accept those working to accelerate women’s equality. Organizations may submit one project to participate. The deadline to submit an application to be considered is Friday, Feb. 7, 2020.

WHEN + WHERE: The Girl Fund Campaign will last one week from Friday, March 6, 2020, at 00:00:00 ET to Friday, March 13, 2020, at 23:59:59 ET. To celebrate the start of the campaign and International Women’s Day, there will be over $15,000 in prizes offered in the first 24 hours of the campaign.

Gear Up For GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign

Gear Up For GlobalGiving’s Year-End Campaign

WHAT: Join GlobalGiving for our 2019 Year-End Campaign during the biggest fundraising month of the year! Following #GivingTuesday, GlobalGiving is offering prizes galore to celebrate you, our partners, and help drive more funds towards your important work. This year we have bonus prizes totaling $12,000 for top crowdfunding projects and much more! 

WHY: With approximately 31% of all annual giving occurring in December, the end of the year is the most crucial time for almost every nonprofit. Recognizing that the holiday season is in full swing, it makes sense for donors to participate in a time of generosity, and utilize the last opportunity to make tax-deductible donations count for this calendar year. For nonprofits, the end of the year is a natural moment to share reflections on the year, broadcast major accomplishments and perhaps major hurdles that still remain, and announce big ideas to fundraise for in the new year.

WHO: The Year-End Campaign is specifically for GlobalGiving’s active Partner, Leader, and Superstar organizations. Active projects and microprojects will be automatically included. The deadline to submit new projects, project edits, project appeals, and project reports is 17:00:00 ET on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2019.

WHEN + WHERE: GlobalGiving’s 2019 Year-End Campaign will begin at 00:00:00 ET on Wednesday Dec. 4, 2019, and end at 23:59:59 ET on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2019. Prizes will be displayed on the Year-End Campaign leaderboard. 

HOW TO GET STARTED:

  • Register for the #GivingTuesday Campaign Webinar at 10:00:00 ET on Thursday, Sept. 26, 2019. 
  • Read through GlobalGiving’s 2019 Year-End Campaign Terms + Conditions to see how this campaign can transform your organization’s year-end fundraising! 
  • Gather your team to set and design a stress-free year-end fundraising strategy.

How To Succeed In Our 2019 Photo Contest: Top Tips From 2018 Winners

How To Succeed In Our 2019 Photo Contest: Top Tips From 2018 Winners

With the right image, you have the power to communicate your organization’s mission to donors in a compelling way. GlobalGiving’s annual Photo Contest gives our nonprofit partners a platform to show off your best shots, spread awareness, and gain new donors! To get you started, here are a few helpful tips from three top finishers in the 2018 Photo Contest:

Anjali Mittal – International Association for Human Values

DO use an image that you created yourself. 

“If you are considering entering the Photo Contest, you have probably been an avid photography hobbyist for some time and have your own personally created library of images. Draw on these images to find inspiration for your non-profit. The same things that inspire you are likely to be reflected in or have motivated your non-profit in some way. Once you find the connection that speaks to you, it will speak to others who may be moved to contribute to your non-profit.”
