Make GlobalGiving Mobile


Summary needs to be re-designed to work simply on mobile phones. A mobile-friendly website will make it easier for people to give, and will make it possible for nonprofit leaders around the world to fundraise and update donors using their phones. We envision a new design for the GlobalGiving site that will make smartphone donations easy and addictive, getting more funds to the ground so they can do the most good!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Our website, created 12 years ago, wasn't built to work on a smartphone. Yet, in most countries where our nonprofit partners work, smartphones are much more common than personal computers. Studies show more than 50% of people who try to donate by using a mobile device actually give up if website isn't made for mobile. So this is a no-brainer. We owe it to our nonprofits to make GlobalGiving as easy as possible. We simply don't have the resources to make mobile-friendly.

How will this project solve this problem?

We have an great tech team that has developed But their day-to-day work is currently limited to maintaining our website, working with our corporate partners, and building new features for our nonprofit project leaders. We need approximately $30,000 to help our current team re-organize their work and to invest in the tools we need to re-develop the website to work well on smartphones.

Potential Long Term Impact

It's simple. A better user experience will lead to more completed donations, and that means more dollars for high-performing projects on the ground. Your donation toward a mobile solution for will result in more kids attending school, more micro-loans for women entrepreneurs, more babies being born HIV-free, and many other earth-changing achievements...
