This is a great online platform for charities. Unlike many others that take an admin fee and leave all the legwork to the charity, Global Giving actively promotes itself and its projects helping attract new donors. The training in how to improve online fundraising communications is also excellent.

Mann Deshi Foundation started its operation in 1996 in remote areas of Maharashtra and Karnataka. Women of Mann Deshi are the clients who are engage in agricultural activities. Mann Deshi women require daily saving facility, it is not affordable for them to come to bank daily. Mann Deshi is the first bank to provide door step banking. Mann Deshi not only provides the banking services but also see that women control their finance. In 2005 Mann Deshi started B-school for rural women. Mann Deshi with its comprehensive approach provides financial services and business training. Today Mann Deshi has been able to create +27000 successful entrepreneurs.

What makes the Mann Deshi B-School unique is that it lays no educational or age criterion for enrolment; has “any-day admissions” and offers courses ranging from two days to three months with fees from Rs.25 to Rs.1,200. Founded in December 2006, it encourages and empowers rural women by offering courses to help them run independent enterprises as vendors, screen printers, photo-laminators, efficient goat de-wormers, bag-makers and computer operators.

Thus, an unlettered vegetable hawker like Aruna Gaikwad now uses a cellphone to source supplies from the wholesale market at Karad 100 km away to make profits at the weekly market in Vaduj. Vanita Pise is yet another example who has set up a successful milk vending business with the help of B-school. She uses paper cup making machines for her operation and earns about Rs.10000 per month. (In 2006, Pise received the CII Bharti Woman Exemplar Award by PM Manmohan Singh).

Since December 2006, nearly 40000 women have taken courses here to launch micro-business like selling cell phone recharge coupons, increasing fat content in milk from mulch cattle or selling pav bhaji and Chinese food. Women have also harnessed mobiles to manage—and in some cases, expand—their client base, grow their businesses, and earn higher revenues. The ability to use mobile phones has also reduced women’s need to travel, thus saving them considerable time in managing their businesses and reconciling their work, personal, and family commitments. As they oversee growing enterprises, many Mann Deshi clients experience increased self-confidence and a greater sense of empowerment.

Also Mann Deshi provides personality development courses and implements bicycle program to young girls so that they can continue their higher education.
 Reached out +100,000 rural women (saving account holders)
 Graduated + 39000 women through B-school and out of those 23,400 women have become successful business woman and 80% took loan from Mann Deshi Bank.
 More than 5000 women have been able to get the share in the household property
 Launched the E-Card system, a more efficient, and accessible and secure means to deposit and withdraw money and view transaction history of Mann Deshi client
And all this will not be possible without the support of our partners like Global Giving.

Global Giving is simple and easy to use. It offers us an effective platform to promote the awareness of our organization, the programs we implement and the children we serve. Our organization has used Global Giving for about 1 year. The results achieved in the building awareness and raising funds is something that we, if asked to do it ourselves, could not have done.

Make the fee charged less, from fifteen per cent to five per cent. Start it in India. Have some advisors to help organisations who deal with them on a one on one basis.

Global Giving appears to be doing all they can given the situation. As a former resident of Japan with many Japanese friends scared and suffering through these catastrophic events the very least we can do is to keep supporting this relief effort. Please give what you can. An entire nation is depending on the generosity of the US and other countries peoples to come to their aid. With our assistance they will get through this catastrophy and rebuild their magnificent country as only the Japanese can. I especially like the fact that one can use PayPal without giving yet another organization your personal information.

I would not make changes. They appear to be doing everything right! FYI the check mark next to the words "The Great" makes no sense. Shouldn't it be "They're Great"? Meaning the Foundation.

I successfully uploaded details of my organization. I found complete handling of the uploading process very efficient and professionals. Through consistent efforts of my colleagues, the organization received a contribution of US $ 25,000 through Global Giving. It also stood first in the completion and got listed for one year. Thanks Global Giving.

We're a tiny organization with very little infrastructure, administrative support or advanced technical expertise. This poses real challenges for fundraising. Global Giving allows us to function on a much higher level in all of these areas and gives us access to a pool of donors that would otherwise be entirely unknown and unavailable to us. It also greatly improves our ability to communicate with our donors.

Global Giving allows donors to search for organizations, causes, and geographic-specific projects, and donors feel more secure knowing that these non-profits are credible and are wisely stewarding the funds via project updates.

fundraising for our non-profit. We use the finances to provide aftercare services and safe shelter for girls and women who've been rescued from trafficking.

Create an area where non-profit groups could connect and build possible partnerships. And add a function that'd allow embedding video and multimedia capabilities.
