Nonprofit Spark – Engaging, responsive Global Giving – 12/02/13

It’s coming on Christmas and for this week’s show I’ve tracked down Alison Carlman, the senior unmarketing manager for GlobalGiving, an online marketplace that connects you to the causes and countries you care about.

Alison describes how GlobalGiving provides support for people at charities around the world and solutions for people who want to find projects in other countries to support. Since 2002, more than 350,000 donors have given almost $95 million to 8800 projects worldwide via GlobalGiving. Pretty impressive.

This show is not just about how this organization facilitates giving, though. You’ll also recognize that GlobalGiving is an organization that truly understands what it means to be responsive and engaging.

You can apply to have your organization on the GlobalGiving website and get a lot of training and support in return. But I also know many of you will be interested in reviewing and contributing to international projects who are part of the GlobalGiving community.

I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did.
