What is GlobalGivingTime?
GlobalGivingTime (GGT) is an online platform that allows small charities and NGOs access to a wide range of professional support; recruiting from some of the most sought after multinational corporations and agencies, alongside highly prized local companies across a huge variety of industries. Volunteers, rather than offering money, offer their expertise. GlobalGivingTIME allows volunteers to make an immediate, measurable difference to the work of grassroots organisations all over the world.
What are the benefits?
Taking advantage of professional services like marketing and design agencies, business development consultancy and web development often requires big budgets. For charities these funds could be used in areas of their work that will feel a more immediate impact. However, these services are important elements that can drive your charity's mission forward and affect larger change. GGT offers these services directly to you as and when you need them. Benefit from the skill and knowledge of professionals who work on major brands and services worldwide. By simply posting your ‘challenge’ once on GGT you can gather proposals and ideas from a plethora of sources and choose the offering which suits your charity the best. This is a time saving and financially viable option to acquiring professional expertise for your charity or NGO. Sign up here
As an important item on the global agenda, the increasing need for companies to monitor their corporate responsibility cannot be ignored. GGT gives companies and their employees a simple and efficient option to contribute to their overall corporate responsibility and effect real time change and progress for grassroots charities. Signing up as a companywide initiative allows your employees a means to give back, develop skills, build team and company unity and encourage employee loyalty. United by the act of giving, your company grows stronger and cultivates an enviable reputation for operating responsibly, being socially conscious employers and being active members of the global community.

It’s sometimes hard to find the time to do charity work with the increasingly busy lives we now live. The old idea of having to be physically present to carry out meaningful, effective charity work is long extinct and GGT is leading the way for remote volunteering. You can fit your volunteering around you and know the work you complete is having an instant, purposeful impact for the charity. While giving money is always needed and endlessly helpful, the donating of skills and knowledge is also something very valuable to grassroots charities, this means all volunteers can give something to a cause they are passionate about.
