What Makes GlobalGiving Different?

Projects you can trust.

We fully vet every nonprofit in our community. We’ve even conducted site visits for most organizations—even those in the remote Amazon!

We’re not-for-profit.

Unlike some crowdfunding and technology platforms, our mission is to help nonprofits and donors have more impact, not to make a profit.

We match donations.

We frequently offer campaigns with matching money and bonus prizes to help motivate donors.

Donor satisfaction is guaranteed.

If you don’t like how your donation has been put to work, we’ll let you re-allocate the money to a new project of your choice.

Training and support.

We offer tools, training, and one-on-one support to help nonprofits get the funding and resources they need.

New Funding.

No crowdfunding platform introduces nonprofits to an actual "crowd" of corporate partners and new donors like GlobalGiving.

Direct connections.

GlobalGiving donors know exactly who and what they are funding. They can send and receive messages and get regular updates.

No hidden costs.

There’s no cost for nonprofits to join. Our 5-12% fee on donations is straightforward, all-inclusive, and drives higher returns than any other platform.

We help companies give well.

We partner with some of the largest companies in the world to develop customized giving programs.

We’re truly global.

We’re the only fundraising platform that offers 501c3 equivalency and UK Gift Aid benefits for registered nonprofits around the world—in 175+ countries so far!

We’re quick and nimble.

We’re well-positioned to respond quickly after natural disasters, and we’re committed to supporting recovery for the long haul.

We help nonprofits thrive.

We offer tools and resources to help nonprofits listen to the people they serve, to act on what they hear, and to continually learn. Because we believe philanthropy works best when communities are in the driver's seat of change.

Don't just take our word for it.
