Two former World Bank employees founded GlobalGiving in 2002 to offer a more innovative and efficient way to gather and distribute aid. The organization uses a crowdfunding model to connect vetted nonprofits and local charities in 170 countries with donors and corporate sponsors. 

When disaster strikes because of an acute emergency such as Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas or the wildfires endangering California, GlobalGiving homes in on the community-led outreach efforts best equipped to provide immediate and direct relief. In addition to offering disaster aid, it supports over 22,900 projects focused on children, education, environment, health, technology, and women and girls. Charities have received more than $390 million in donations since GlobalGiving’s inception.
