  • Host at least 4 Online Fundraising workshops throughout the country about the value and principles of online fundraising and to support organizations interested in learning more about GlobalGiving. 
  • Organize and host at least 2 GlobalGiving workshops of existing GlobalGiving partners in your country. Ambassadors will be eligible for reimbursement for costs directly associated with the meet ups

  • Have the option to visit local GlobalGiving partners to earn rewards points and gain valuable monitoring and evaluation skills

To be eligible for the Ambassador Program, you must:

  • Work for an organization that has been successfully using GlobalGiving’s site for AT LEAST three months.
  • Preference will be given to individuals who have been active and engaged on GlobalGiving, are Leaders or Superstars, and who have experience working with nonprofit networks in their country.

GlobalGiving Country Ambassadors will benefit from:

  • A $1,000 grant from GlobalGiving for the Ambassador’s organization at the completion of the Ambassador Program.
  • In depth training about online fundraising and GlobalGiving. During the two-week training, you will gain a deeper understanding of the benefits and challenge of online fundraising from the experts in the DC office.  
  • Networking opportunities in your region with GlobalGiving partners and connections.
  • Funding to host workshops for other organizations in your country and to attend conferences to represent GlobalGiving. Ambassadors have the chance to contribute to the growth of local nonprofit networks by providing networking opportunities at workshops and meet-ups.
  • The opportunity to build relationships with and learn best practices from other GlobalGiving partners through site visits and meetings.
