Deadline: May 3, 2017 –

The GlobalGiving Accelerator is a virtual training program and crowdfunding campaign that will help you take your fundraising to the next level. Following an optional two-week training curriculum, you’ll be entered into an Accelerator campaign where you’ll 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.

Any registered nonprofit (anywhere in the world!) is eligible to apply. The Global Giving Team 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 or GBP, helping you reach your supporters in the US, the UK, and beyond. We’ll also provide matching incentives for your donors, and bonus prizes for the most successful participants.

Training Topics Include:

  • Crowdfunding 101;
  • Mapping your potential donor network;
  • Storytelling and email appeals; and
  • Creating SMART goals.

To Apply:

The first step is to complete the online application. The next deadline to submit applications is May 3rd, 2017 but applications  are accepted at any time.
