What is the GlobalGiving affiliate program?
The GlobalGiving affiliate program allows online publishers to host our banners and links. Whenever a customer clicks on a banner or link and donates to a nonprofit project or buys a GlobalGiving eGift Card on GlobalGiving.com the publisher receives a commission for helping find the new donor.

How much is the commission?  
By becoming an affiliate partner, you will earn 7% of every donation that comes through your site.

Because GlobalGiving is a nonprofit you are also welcome to donate this 7% commission back to GlobalGiving as part of your company’s own charitable giving.  This can be done by simply sending GlobalGiving a check for the amount of your affiliate earnings on a monthly or annual basis.

How much does it cost to join?
Joining is free!

How do I join?
Please sign up to become an affiliate through Commission Junction (CJ).

Is my site eligible to become an affiliate?
The affiliate team does have criteria that we look for when evaluating pending applications. Sites that we approve generally have these characteristics:

  • Sites that are actively maintained. You will have an increased chance of making sales if your site(s) are kept current with our products and any available marketing promotions/campaigns.
  • Enthusiastic website managers who are interested in connecting their brand and their customers to causes that GlobalGiving supports.

What if I have multiple sites?
Once you become an affiliate, you can place our banner and links on one or all of your sites.

What are my responsibilities as an affiliate?
Your responsibilities include actively putting up links and banners soon after becoming an affiliate. Once your links are up and running, please be sure to check out our newsletters and the CJ interface for new marketing campaigns to keep your site fresh. Keep in mind that we have four different catalogs in our annual cycle, so this can be a guide for updating your site.

How do I know I will be credited for sales coming from my site?
Once you have been accepted into CJ’s program, you will have access to an assortment of banners and links that will all have tracking codes. These tracking codes are administered through CJ’s interface and will track sales generated through your website. You will be able to see the order in the interface after it has been placed through your site.

How do I know how much I have earned?
You will also be able to track commissions earned through CJ’s interface. There are many reports available through the interfaces that allow you to track your sales.

How am I paid?
CJ will pay your commissions directly on a monthly basis.

How do I create links?
Go into CJ’s interface to find hundreds of different links and banner ads to use on your site. Our monthly newsletters feature our top banners and links. Just copy and paste the code to your site and you are ready to go!
