Each organization that applies to GlobalGiving is vetted by our team of skilled nonprofit investigators. They carefully review all financial and organizational documents of each organization to ensure that they use the funds as they stated. Additionally, we send a member of our team to each organization once every 2 years to check on them in person.
Here at GlobalGiving, we believe it is important for donors to have real, human relationships with the people leading the projects they are funding. We give donors the option to share their contact information with the project leader or to remain anonymous. The information shared may include their name, phone number, and possibly mailing address. In addition, every project on our site includes the contact information of the project leader, giving donors the opportunity to establish a relationship with the people behind the project page.
Project leaders post project updates directly to GlobalGiving.org on average every 3 to 4 months. Project updates will be emailed to donors automatically unless they have unsubscribed from these emails.
