100% Donation Matching for Japan recovery!

Dear GlobalGivers,

We are very excited to announce that starting today, November 1, we're matching your donations dollar-for-dollar toward qualified projects that focus on  long-term recovery in Japan.  

We work with 20 organizations that are helping Japanese people recover from the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.  For example, ETIC helped Naoko rebuild a shopping area that had been destroyed. The new shopping area is now revitalizing the local economy.  In Minamisanriku-cho, Architecture for Humanity is about to finish up rebuilding a workplace for fishermen in the tsunami-stricken area.  You can read more updates directly from the field here.  Your donations have made it possible for our partners to restore the communities.  Thank you!

Although our partners have made great strides toward long-term recovery, there is still so much more to be done.  We invite you to take advantage of this great opportunity to double the impact of your donations toward these important projects. 
Thank you again for your support,
Mari Seto and the GlobalGiving Team

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
