The GlobalGiving Accelerator is an opportunity for you and your organisation to build skills, access tools, and grow your base of supporters to achieve crowdfunding success. First, when you graduate, your organisation becomes a permanent member of Global Giving, and you will have access to all the tools, training, and one-on-one support available in the GlobalGiving community. 

How The 2020 Giving Season Accelerator Works

The GlobalGiving Accelerator is a virtual training program and crowdfunding campaign that will help you take your fundraising to the next level. After an optional one-week training curriculum, you will be entered into an Accelerator campaign where you will raise at least $5,000 total from a minimum of 40 different donors in order to graduate and secure a permanent fundraising spot on the GlobalGiving platform.

Generally, any registered nonprofit (anywhere in the world) is eligible to apply.

The initiative will support you as you reach out to your own networks, and tell your story in new and compelling ways. Donors can give in USD, GBP, EUR, CAD, and AUD, helping you reach your supporters in the US, the UK, and beyond. Also, it will also provide matching incentives for your donors and bonus prizes for the most successful participants.
