Why Join?

You need more than just
a crowdfunding platform.

GlobalGiving is the world’s first + largest global crowdfunding community that connects nonprofits, donors, and companies in 165+ countries. We’re a partner, not a platform.

Training and Support For Your Level

Join one of our webinars, training academies, or workshops. Or, delve into our training library, set up a one-on-one phone consultation, or even participate in a site visit from the GlobalGiving team!

Powerful Tools

Engage your donors with thank-you notes, fundraising appeals, and project reports. Use our analytics and feedback reports to learn and improve your fundraising.

Extra Funding

In 2016, our matching offers, bonus prizes, corporate partnerships, and marketing efforts drove more than $10 million in extra funding to our partners, just for being part of GlobalGiving!

Credibility + Visibility

Let us help you gain visibility and new donors through our credibility! GlobalGiving maintains a four-star Charity Navigator rating, BBB accreditation, and GuideStar Platinum certification.

Help When You Need It

Our teams in the US and UK are ready to support you and your donors. You can even request simple and advanced volunteer support for your fundraising or programs, all through GlobalGiving.

Tax Benefits

Appeal to donors in the US and the UK who can receive tax benefits in their country for donating to your project, even if you’re not based in those countries.

Commitment to Impact

Learn and grow with the support of your peers and the GlobalGiving team, even if it involves failure. Learning organizations earn GG Rewards points to gain more visibility and funding!

Disaster support

If a major disaster strikes in your community, we’ve got your back. Local organizations are key to disaster relief so we’ll fundraise on your behalf and deliver grant funding within days of the event.

Apply Now

We amplify every donation

GlobalGiving is free to join and we’ll never charge an application fee or a subscription fee! Instead, we retain 15% of each donation to raise even more money for your organization. With a $100 donation, we’ll use $15 of it to raise, on average, an additional $20 for your nonprofit. In 2016 alone, GlobalGiving drove more than $10 million in extra funding to our nonprofit partners, making GlobalGiving essentially free for most nonprofit partners.

As an organization that had never conducted a formal end of year appeal until this year, GlobalGiving greatly streamlined and simplified our experience, and also allowed us to greatly exceed our fundraising goals. I also think the built-in incentives and the competition element helped encourage more donors. [...] Ultimately, I, along with my organization’s board, were very glad to have participated in the Challenge.

The training before the campaign was extremely helpful to our organization. This was our first attempt at raising money online. GlobalGiving gave us a step by step process to follow which raised our confidence level and made the campaign more exciting. We are thrilled to be a part of GlobalGiving’s Accelerator and thank you for your very professional advice.

What I love about GlobalGiving is the multitude of opportunities that are available for the nonprofits. In addition to the matching bonus days, we also get donations through corporate gift cards, GlobalGiving API, exposure through project reports and leaderboards, and small program grants. I am also quite excited about the learning opportunities through Social Impact Academy, which help us assess the impact of our project in the community. The staff at GlobalGiving are so friendly, and treat me as part of their team.

At first, we felt very challenged by the requirement of finding $5,000 from 40 donors in just one month. However, we quickly realised that we had all the necessary resources and we were pushed to use our communication skills at it’s best! That experience taught us many things, including how to tap into our network. Over the years, we have participated in several site visits and trainings, including from Eleanor Harrison, Chief Executive at GlobalGiving UK. Her input has been valuable on many different levels.
