Never a dull moment in the GlobalGiving UK London office (Project Report 20 September 2013)

There is never a dull moment in our GlobalGiving UK London office. If you could have a look at it now, what you would find are groups of volunteers delivering vital work for GlobalGiving UK, writing press releases, blog posts, grant applications, expanding our social media reach, reaching out to prospective partner corporates and new charities in need of support, and setting up story-telling events to allow all friends of GlobalGiving UK to get to know our partner charities (we hosted a beautiful Blankets and Wine event in Regent’s Park in London beginning of August). And that is not all. Six GlobalGiving UK volunteers are visiting our overseas charities in Zimbabwe, India, Ghana, South Africa and Morocco and thus are playing a key role in supporting impact measurement for our project partners and ourselves, allowing you to find out exactly what impact your donations are making in their local communities.

Furthermore, GlobalGiving UK is always looking for great new charities to partner with. We have been working hard on making sure everything is in place for our Gateway Challenge (18th November to 23rd December), a fundraising challenge that offers a chance for prospective partner charities to expand donor networks through GlobalGiving UK, receive 4 weeks of structured free training and support, and win bonus prizes of up to £4000. The deadline for applications is just a week away, so the team is very busy reaching out to new partner charities and looking at all the received applications, making sure their due diligence is thoroughly checked before they can start fundraising through GlobalGiving.co.uk. Kathryn Garnett, past Gateway Challenge participants and project leader of African Steps, a charity working to improve and sustain the provision of healthcare on Likoma Island in Malawi, said: “We thought the challenge was fantastic as it allowed us to raise a large amount of money in a short time, but also it has raised our profile enormously and increased our supporter base beyond our hopes.”

Without your dedication and support GlobalGiving UK would never be able to grow and help charities like this one in over 80 countries around the world significantly improve or even save lives in their local communities. Thank you for enabling GlobalGiving UK to make positive change happen.
