GlobalGiving is helping lead an effort to align the strategy, operations, and branding of online philanthropy marketplaces. The Foundation’s support would allow them to organize four meetings of key organizations over the next two years and aim to facilitate a set of concrete collaborations across groups of two or more of these organizations. Further, GlobalGiving would work with the Hewlett Foundation (and partners at the Gates Foundation and the financial firm LiquidNet) to more broadly articulate a vision for online giving in which economies of scale (to reduce costs) and network effects (to increase impact) are achieved.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Feedback Labs project
Hosted by GlobalGiving, Feedback Labs is a collaboration among nine non-governmental organizations active in international development and philanthropy. The Feedback Labs partners seek to shorten the feedback loops between beneficiary populations, donors, and implementers to improve the way nonprofits, social enterprises, aid agencies, and private funders operate. This seed funding would help staff the collaborative effort, support the rapid prototyping and testing of new feedback approaches, and fund the dissemination of the most scalable models and tools for gathering and enabling better citizen feedback.
for projects to support international women’s organizations in the developing world
GlobalGiving (Washington, DC) connects donors around the world with small development projects across the Global South. In honor of Eleanor Gimon's upcoming retirement after 32 years of service, the Hewlett Foundation is providing a grant to the GlobalGiving Foundation, representing an allocation of $1,000 per employee for 114 employees and board members (plus an administrative fee of 15%). These funds will be allocated across a series of projects in international women’s organizations in health, empowerment, and reproductive rights in the developing world. The grant amount will be allocated based on employee votes to the projects.
for a project to develop a global unique identifier system for nonprofits
GlobalGiving is leading an effort to create a unique identifier system for nonprofits around the world. GuideStar USA is launching such a system in the US. This grant will help GlobalGiving as they coordinate among GuideStar, Foundation Center, TechSoup Global, and others, to determine the best shared strategy to build a global counterpart to GuideStar's domestic system.
