Can my nonprofit use GlobalGiving to raise funds for military support or military-related causes?

GlobalGiving does not fund or allow funds raised on GlobalGiving to be used for militarization. Examples of activities we do not support include:

  • military or combat training; 
  • military development; 
  • the purchase, promotion, or use of weapons; 
  • general support to armed forces or militias;
  • preparing children or youth to join or support military service, such as through patriotic-military education; teaching combat awareness, civilian defense skills, or weapons handling;
  • direct delivery of aid by the military.


Permitted activities include:

  • general veteran support
  • supporting military families/families of armed personnel
  • supporting injured armed forces personnel if they are no longer active combatants.
