COVID-19 GlobalGiving Policy Update

COVID-19 GlobalGiving Policy Update

After speaking with our partners over the past few weeks, we know that nearly everyone is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Hundreds of you are directly responding, and others have had to drastically modify programming and fundraising plans. In an effort to better support our community, GlobalGiving has amended existing policies to provide our partners with extra flexibility during this challenging time.

  • We’ve given all projects a 30-day project report extension. Your next report will be due thirty days later than its original due date, at no penalty to your organization. You can see when your next report is due in your dashboard.
  • If your organization has an application renewal due in April or May, we’ve extended your due date by two months.
  • If you have unspent funds from GlobalGiving received in 2020, consider these project-specific resources to be a general operating grant. We hope this allows you to use the funding in response to your most urgent needs during this difficult time. This statement is intended to replace and supersede article 6.1 in GlobalGiving’s Terms and Conditions for disbursements received from January 1, 2020 through June 30, 2020. Please update GlobalGiving and your donors as to changes in fund use in your next project report.

We hope you will stay in touch and let us know how else we can be helpful. If your organization is directly responding to the pandemic, we also encourage you to post a new project so we can add you to our list of responding partners.

Get Fired Up For Five Full Days Of Matching This March

Get Fired Up For Five Full Days Of Matching This March

WHAT: The March Little by Little Campaign is a five-day crowdfunding campaign that’s designed to help the GlobalGiving community cultivate a large and strong network of small-dollar donors. This week, all eligible donations up to $50 per unique donor per organization will be matched at 50% during the campaign. Funds will not run out! 

WHY: At GlobalGiving, we run the Little by Little campaign twice a year because we believe in the power of the crowd and we know that having a large membership base gives you the strength and flexibility necessary to achieve impact. 

Perhaps our partner Education East Africa stated it best in citing this African Proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

WHO: The Little by Little Campaign is exclusively for GlobalGiving Partners, Leaders, and Superstars banked outside of India. Associated active projects and microprojects will be automatically included. The deadline to submit new projects for inclusion in this campaign is Wednesday, March 18, at 5 p.m. ET.

WHEN + WHERE: GlobalGiving’s 2020 March Little by Little Matching Campaign runs from 09:00:00 ET on Monday, March 23,  to 23:59:59 ET on Friday, March 27. Fundraising totals and bonus prizes will be displayed on the Little by Little Leaderboard.

HOW TO GET STARTED

New Donation Currencies On GlobalGiving!

New Donation Currencies On GlobalGiving!

It’s been a big year for GlobalGiving—earlier this year, we introduced Euros as a donation option, and this week, we’re adding Canadian dollars (CAD) and Australian dollars (AUD)!

Since the GlobalGiving community is truly global, expanding the currency offerings available to donors is important for us. We’ve started with these three additional options this year since they represent significant portions of the GlobalGiving donor community. And we’re hoping to add even more currencies in the future!

New Donation Currencies On GlobalGiving! Your nonprofit’s donors across the Eurozone, Canada, and Australia can now donate to your project through GlobalGiving without paying conversion fees. GlobalGiving will pay the bank’s currency conversion fees out of our normal fees at no extra cost to you. Review frequently asked questions about the currencies available on GlobalGiving.

The Disaster Feedback Fellows Program is back!

The Disaster Feedback Fellows Program is back!

The 2018 inaugural GlobalGiving Disaster Feedback Fellows program was a huge success and we’re bringing it back again this year! 

We’re inviting GlobalGiving partners working on disaster relief and recovery across the world to apply to be part of the 2019-2020 Disaster Feedback Fellowship program. These 5 fellows will be part of a cohort of 10 frontline practitioners who are currently utilizing feedback practices in their work and will be supported by Feedback Labs for a year-long fellowship to deepen that practice. 

If you’re a GlobalGiving partner working across thematic areas outside the scope of disaster response, you’re eligible to apply to this related Feedback Fellows program. Otherwise, please read on.
