Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, International Relief

Mission: GO invests in leaders who have the capacity to end poverty in their communities.

Results: Started in 2008 with $2,000 investment and raised $3.4M YTD in 2011. We have invested in over 25 leadership teams globally that have created over 2,500 permanent jobs for those living in extreme poverty while providing access to quality foods, healthcare, and housing.

Target demographics: Developing world communities where individuals earn less than $2 per day.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 250,000 people improve their wellbeing.

Geographic areas served: Africa, Southeast Asia, Central America

Programs: We believe that community-based leaders have the wisdom and ambition to address the root causes of poverty — if only they were properly supported. By engaging a global network through technology, GO is able to provide these leaders with the tools — visibility, training and seed funding — they need to bring their projects to scale and accelerate systemic change in their own communities and beyond.

GO has been helping the community I work with in the Amazon to raise funds for a campaign they have spearheaded that will benefit their community. GO's platform gives 100% of funds collected to the participating communities and their projects. This is unlike any other crowdfunding platform. GO is an inspiring organization that enrolls people to raise funds and give while getting results. I am grateful to work with GO.

As the head of a 90 bed mission hospital in a remote part of northeastern Ghana, West Africa, I am deeply grateful for Groundwork Opportunities. They have assisted our hospital since 2008 and have been enormously helpful. GO is a smart, savvy organization that ensures donor monies are well spent on projects that work. Please support GO; you are helping those of us in deprived rural areas to serve the poorest of the poor.
