I have known GG team since 2005. The management and staff care about the organizations they support. Support is not only in form of funds but also capacity building. I love the fact that GG partners and sits on the same table as the organizations they support rather than just send money and hope it will land on the people or causes they serve. Few foundations do what GG does but GG does it with dignity and respect for the people they serve.

The Global Giving platform has brought us new donors and a consistent stream of much needed support since 2008. Their creativity, high standards and individualized support inspire us.

I learnt about GG from my work place during the Japan nuclear issue, what impressed me was that follow up on the project I had donated to with reports regularly even after several years.

Second I learnt that my work place and other such large corporates rely on GG to validate NGO/Charities before on boarding them to their own CSR activities.

When I wanted to enlist the local charity I support, I went to GG and have had great experience on their web site, their staff are very responsive, they share knowledge openly...

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.

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.

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.

Global Giving is a great way to grow our individual giving program. Through their Bonus Days and other contests, they provide many incentives for our donors to support us. They also offer exposure to donors who might not otherwise find us, connect with us, and donate.

Our organization has raised funds through Global Giving for several years now. It took us a little while to find projects that would appeal to a broad audience, but now that we have, the fundraising efforts have been quite successful. In addition to raising funds, the platform has also allowed us to raise awareness for our work with specific underserved communities.

We are a small nonprofit that needs help reaching beyond our existing contacts with a very small budget & technical resources. The training that GlobalGiving offers is priceless. Staff at GG are accessible, and they really listen to the needs of those they serve. Then there is the actual giving platform - so easy to use, and you don't feel like they've stolen or obscured your identity. I've also been a donor to other projects on GG, and the donor experience is wonderful as well - and that's so important! I want to use a platform that treats our donors well! They give us great tools for donor cultivation. Everything is well thought-out and done with excellence.

Global Giving provides local NGOs in developing countries with credibility. The rigorous due dillligence process organisations undergo means that only bona fide, credible, transparent organisations get to showcase their projects and participate in GG on-line fundraising.

The on-line fundraising tools provided by Global Giving are very user friendly. They make it easy for NGOs to promote their projects in an interesting and informative way. They also make it easy for the donors to contribute to a project.

The Global Giving staff are very approachable and offer tailored advice to member organisations.

I rate Global Giving as a must for all NGOs who want to have an easy, credible and effective on-line donations mechanism.
