Planned Giving with GlobalGiving

Planned Giving

GlobalGiving offers a suite of planned giving solutions to fit a wide range of needs. Our goal is to make planned giving as easy as possible and honor your charitable aspirations and intentions. Learn more about planned giving through GlobalGiving and join us on the journey to accelerate community-led change.

Estate Planning + Bequests

It is free, quick, and easy to create or update your will with a designation to GlobalGiving through our partnership with FreeWill. Consulting with a lawyer is also a recommended step in the process.

Your planned gift to GlobalGiving can be designed according to your needs and interests. Most donors choose an organization to support (from among hundreds of vetted options) or craft a gift to benefit a specific theme, country, or set of projects (for example, projects that improve health outcomes in Nepal or projects that help children succeed in Zimbabwe.)

Contact a member of the GlobalGiving team before you make your gift to ensure that your estate planning and bequest wishes are properly understood.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

You can make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) to GlobalGiving from your IRA. It is free, quick, and easy to do through our partnership with FreeWill.

You can also make requests directly through your IRA custodian or financial advisor. If you would like to make a qualified charitable distribution to GlobalGiving or one of our amazing partners, instruct your IRA custodian or financial advisor to include with the payment or donation letter:

  • Your name
  • Email address or physical mailing address
  • Details about your designation

With this information, we can ensure you get the proper documentation for your tax preparation. For more information about how QCDs work, please refer to IRS guidelines.

Donor-Advised Funds

Giving to nonprofits internationally or donating to disaster relief abroad through donor-advised funds is possible with GlobalGiving. You can simply log into your DAF account, select your designation as GlobalGiving, and include the name of the organization and/or project ID number of your intended GlobalGiving partner organization in your notes. Learn more about DAFs in the GlobalGiving Learn Library.

Major Gifts

Honor a loved one’s legacy or change the game for a cause you are passionate about with a major gift to GlobalGiving or one of our partner organizations. A member of our team can guide you through the process and help you craft a gift that fits your needs. Our support fee, which covers the cost of our vetting services and provides tools and training to our partner organizations, can be negotiated for gifts above $25,000.

Resources for Financial Advisors + Lawyers

For documentation purposes, the full legal name of the organization is GlobalGiving Foundation Inc and the DBA is GlobalGiving. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, charitable organization.
