Philanthropy to accelerate community-led change
The world never runs out of people who want to change the world for the better. But there is strength in numbers and GlobalGiving is committed to connecting individuals, companies, donors and foundations, and social groups who share their mission of transforming aid and philanthropy to accelerate community-led change. As the largest global crowdfunding community, GlobalGiving aims to revolutionize and democratize the idea of charity by not just providing funds to where it is needed, but also by helping non-profit organizations and donors have access to information, ideas, tools, training, and support for them to function more effectively. GlobalGiving supports a wide range of initiatives on education, health, disaster relief and recovery, women empowerment, poverty and social justice, and many more. GlobalGiving believes that good ideas can come from anyone, anywhere, at any time. Part of their success is having a team of curious and passionate data scientists, software engineers, artists, businessmen, company executives, and other professionals from all walks of life and they continue to expand as a community. Since 2002, GlobalGiving has helped raise about $420 million from almost 1 million supportive individuals and groups. In turn, they were able to mount and fund over 20,000 projects and counting with beneficiaries all over the world. Their overall success was achieved through intensive research which enabled them to develop their own funding platform, feedback tools, and a framework that supports their goal of building a global movement for social progress. Despite the numerous achievements of GlobalGiving since they started, they continue to push their boundaries as a top-rated charity. In 2020, Global Giving aims for 100% involvement from their non-profit partners by introducing GG Rewards. This program is to encourage the non-profits to become more effective and in return, Global Giving will promote their organization to their donors.
