GlobalGiving Accelerator is a virtual training program and crowd-funding campaign that creates opportunities for nonprofits, donor and organisation to build skills, access tools and a growing base of supporters, as well as achieve crowdfunding success.
A graduate-organisation will become a permanent member of GlobalGiving and have access to all the tools, training, and one-on-one support available in the GlobalGiving community.
Under the 2019 programme, GlobalGiving will organise an optional one-week training curriculum. Participants will be entered into an accelerator campaign where at least $5,000 in total will be raised from a minimum of 40 different donors in order to graduate and secure a permanent fundraising spot on the GlobalGiving platform. Companies would be supported as they reach out to their own networks and tell stories in new and compelling ways.
