The GlobalGiving Innovation Fund



A gift to the GlobalGiving Innovation Fund supports innovation at GlobalGiving; it helps us create more tools, training, and opportunities for nonprofits on the GlobalGiving platform. This fund helps us (and our partners) listen, learn, experiment, and improve. When you give to this fund, you're amplifying the impact of every dollar given through toward an important cause somewhere in the world.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

We believe that organizations that are curious--specifically, those that use and value feedback as a tool to improve the way they work--tend to be most effective at meeting needs in their communities. But we know that nonprofits often feel it's too risky to experiment in response to feedback, because they've been conditioned to provide supporters with "good news." Therefore, learning and improvement are often stifled. But GlobalGiving helps nonprofits gather feedback, experiment and grow.

How will this project solve this problem?

GlobalGiving helps nonprofits increase their effectiveness because we help them learn and improve. We're in a unique position to help nonprofits experiment, and we can offer meaningful incentives (dollars!) to accelerate their "listen, experiment, learn" process, making your donations become more effective over time. Donations to this Fund help us develop tools, deliver feedback, train leaders, and reward smart behavior so that nonprofit leaders and organizations can do their jobs even better.

Potential Long Term Impact

We don't just want to help nonprofits raise money. We want to help them learn and improve, and we want to reward the ones who serve their communities best. We're actively creating a system where the most effective organizations--those that prove they can listen, experiment, and learn--rise to the top on the GlobalGiving platform. By donating to the GlobalGiving Innovation Fund, you're helping us create a marketplace where the most resources flow toward those highest-performing organizations.
