GlobalGiving is the first and largest global crowdfunding community for nonprofits. We give social entrepreneurs and nonprofits anywhere in the world a chance to raise the money that they need to improve their communities.
We believe that grassroots nonprofit organisations are best placed to create sustainable community initiatives and achieve positive long-term social impact. We support them by connecting them to the resources they need to create change: access to our online fundraising platform, access to learning opportunities to build skills and knowledge, access to support through a growing network of volunteers and corporate partners.
GlobalGiving set out with two goals: first, to provide new giving options for people wanting a direct, transparent, high-impact giving experience; and second, to provide the vital access to resources that community organisations need. Using a technology platform we are able to provide a scalable solution, whilst also recognising that people and connections are critical to making this vision a success.

She shares her top tip for other entrepreneurs, after meeting with John, in this video.
John was informed, articulate, clear, resourceful and passionate about my work. It was great to hear back what is so exciting about GlobalGiving UK and the exceptional work we are doing to make the world a little brighter, a little better. John paid great attention to the detail of our challenges and structured a key actionable path to get to the next stage of our journey.
