I am both a donor and client - Global Giving allows nonprofits to find a broader audience for support, makes online donor solicitation engaging and easy, and provides tools for nonprofits to help make communication and donor management smooth, attractive and quick. The GG staff are all extremely responsive and provide great technical support as well as informative and relevant training to help nonprofits make the most of their site. It's personal and fun - but also important and inspirational!

The best thing we got out of our participation was the ability to use text messaging to obtain donations (which would have been very cost prohibitive if we did it on our own.)

The best thing I got out of being a donor was finding a quick and effective way to donate to relief efforts following Hurricane Sandy.

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My friends are emailing from Japan that they are receiving US assistance.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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.
