GlobalGiving Launches Learn: A Dynamic Resource Library For Nonprofits, Donors, and Companies

Washington, DC, February 9, 2017 - Today GlobalGiving announced the launch of a growing collection of resources to help nonprofits, donors, and companies create more good in the world. Funded in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and featuring content sourced from the GlobalGiving community,’s new Learn library is full of free tips, tools, and resources to help organizations and funders learn and improve.

“On our new Learn section, users will find stories about philanthropic successes and failures. They’ll find wisdom and inspiration from nonprofits on topics that matter to them, including fundraising, technology, marketing, and organizational management,” said Mari Kuraishi, President and Co-Founder of GlobalGiving. “They’ll find data and evidence of up-to-date experimentation that’s moving the needle for donor behavior and nonprofit effectiveness.“

This valuable content is freely available, 24-7, on GlobalGiving’s website, and the library will continue to grow in the coming weeks and months.

Here is a look at content now available on Learn:
