Web Sites: GlobalGiving.com
Why I am recommending GlobalGiving.com:
This organization is about supporting people who have a commitment to give. Global Giving allows for donors to give directly and to track how their donation is making a difference.
From the website:
Because we enable donors to give directly to projects, they know exactly where their money is going. Donors can see progress updates on most projects as funding is received and goals are met.
Donations made through GlobalGiving are higher impact because:
- Money is going directly to a well-defined project versus supporting general operating expenses
- Projects on globalgiving.com have exposure to thousands of donors, enabling us to aggregate multiple sources of funding for each project
- Many projects on globalgiving.com are located in the developing world where a little money goes a long way
We connect donors to projects via our "public" website, globalgiving.com as well as through custom giving services.
