GlobalGiving is an innovative online fundraising platform for nonprofits of all sizes all around the world. Since 2002, more than 2,600 nonprofits have raised nearly $58 million for 4,800 projects through GlobalGiving.org. GlobalGiving is an open platform; if you’re interested in learning more about online fundraising, you’re invited to join the GlobalGiving community! 

To secure a permanent spot on the site — and to get access to a range of benefits — you are invited to join through an Open Challenge. During an Open Challenge, organizations are required to raise $4,000 for your project from at least 50 people. But don’t worry! GlobalGiving offers training, tools, and support to help organizations reach this fundraising goal.  Once organizations secure a spot on GlobalGiving, they can benefit from GlobalGiving’s corporate partnerships (with Nike, Dell, Gap and Ford, for example) and they can also benefit form GlobalGiving’s marketing campaigns and media outreach.

In the last Open Challenge in December, 276 organizations raised nearly $800,000 by leveraging this opportunity. The next Open Challenge will take place in April 2012, and will be sponsored by Dell, Powering the Possible.

The deadline to submit the nomination form and Due Diligence paperwork is March 1, 2012.
