We amplify every donation

GlobalGiving is a nonprofit. Our community is free to join, and we don’t charge an application or subscription fee. Instead, we retain a 5–12% nonprofit support fee on donations, plus 3% transaction processing fee. But we’re committed to raising even more money for your organization than we retain in fees. For example, for every $1 that goes to GlobalGiving in fees, we’ll raise, on average, an additional $2 for your nonprofit. In 2020, GlobalGiving drove $34 million in extra funding to nonprofits, making access to the community essentially free for most of our 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.
