Applications call for GlobalGiving Accelerator 2020

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 one-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 organizer 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, GBP, EUR, CAD, and AUD, helping you reach your supporters in the US, the UK, and beyond. GlobalGiving also provide matching incentives for the donors and bonus prizes for the most successful participants.

Training Topics

  • Crowdfunding 101
  • Mapping your potential donor network
  • Storytelling and email appeal
  • Creating SMART goals


Organizations that successfully complete the GlobalGiving Accelerator by raising at least $5,000 total from a minimum of 40 different donors will earn:

  • Permanent membership in the GlobalGiving community, including ongoing opportunities to attract new corporate and individual donors.
  • Inclusion in a GlobalGiving press release announcing the Accelerator graduates.
  • A custom media kit to help promote your accomplishment as well as the certificate of completion from GlobalGiving.
  • Furthermore, additional promotional opportunities, including through GlobalGiving’s social media or homepage, for top-performers.

Additional Gifts
