Welcome! We’re really happy you’re here.

If you are visiting GlobalGiving’s newest online resource, Learn, it probably means you want to make the world a better place, just like us. It’s extremely hard work (we know), but Learn makes it easier. In 2002, GlobalGiving created the first crowdfunding community for nonprofits, donors, and companies, and we’ve been learning ever since. Learning is a vital, never-ending endeavor, and we believe we’re better off when we do it together.

That’s why Learn is now part of GlobalGiving.

Our community is so diverse—with people and projects in nearly every country in the world. Together, we’re finding local solutions to global problems in education, human rights, animal welfare, environmental conservation, and lots of other areas. We’ve found one thing to be true across all sectors: the most effective organizations are always learning. Organizations that listen to the people they serve, act on what they hear by testing new ideas, and learn from their results become more impactful than those that don’t.

On Learn, you will find free tips, tools, and resources for impacting the causes that matter to you. You’ll find stories about successes—and failures. You’ll find wisdom and inspiration from your peers on topics that you care about, including fundraising, technology, marketing, and nonprofit management. Hopefully, you’ll visit often and help Learn grow.

In honor of our 2017 grand opening, check out six features you’ll love on GlobalGiving’s Learn:
