Global Giving not only helps us promote our work among orphan children but also provides valuable trainings, one on one email support from its dedicated staff team, increases our visibility to corporates and above all, gives a supportive hand to keep doing the good work when we are burnout. I wish Global Giving Foundation all the very best and success in impacting the lives of the most needy at the grassroot level.

We are using GlobalGiving's platform to raise funds for our NGO in Pakistan. It's amazing the kind of in-depth and relevant support they have offered!

GlobalGiving is a very powerful online fundraising platform, and our project (Overseas China Education Foundation) benefits a lot from it. It has a lot of fundraising/management tools. Especially the Thank You email sending and required periodical update reports can help us thank the donors and give them feedback about the progress of our projects.

Still, 15% processing fee is a little bit higher.

GlobalGiving provides a great atmosphere to the Small and Medium Non-profits to think out of the box and achieve more of the fundraising goals and targets. It also provides reliability and credibility to the outer world and encourages that to contribute as much as.

GlobalGiving should also give open permanent space for us to post our projects as many as we could regardless of any Open Challenge. It should be open for all.

When you have a project for which you require funding it is much easier to get it from a wide donor base. This is what GlobalGiving makes possible. For the project make it clear that a small donation of $10 or $15 will enable you to do this or this. A little bigger amount of $25 to $40 makes this or this possible and so on. Do have bigger options of $100 and $500 too. One never knows when one will turn lucky! Every little bit counts and you will be able to reach your target.
GlobalGiving gives Tax Exemption certificates to US and UK donors so the donors are also getting something from the donation. It seems to be a WIN WIN situation for all.

Global Giving has facilitated EarthSpark's fundraising and has offered a wealth of resources to our small organization. The criteria with which they judge reporting, and their ranking system for engaged non-profits are both fair, and their work cultivating relationships with corporate partners greatly expands the universe of potential donors who can hear our message. We love their work and very much appreciate their help!

Global Giving provides an unsurpassed opportunity for a local or regional nonprofit to achieve visibility world wide for its mission, and to attract new donors who would not otherwise have become aware of the organization's needs and work. The process of setting up a project is accomplished with ease and Global Giving staff are easily accessible for support and respond promptly to questions or requests for advice. The templates provided for creating projects are easy to follow and the end result is attractive. Templates provided for project reports and thank you letters provide a format and lend themselves to customization. Project reports are prompted before they become due and the act of writing a report is useful in that the information can usually be used in other ways for education or marketing on a local or regional level. I am very happy with the quality of the site, the people associated with Global Giving and the service it provides and am proud to associate our organization with theirs.
