Back in February 2019 we were encouraged by a longstanding, incredibly generous supporter to apply to become a member of a non-profit organisation called GlobalGiving. We are now a temporary member of this four-star Charity Navigator rated organisation which connects non-profits, donors and companies around the world.
US and UK donors will be pleased to learn that GlobalGiving has both US and UK registration, All donations via this platform qualify American donors for tax deductibility and UK residents for Gift Aid. Unfortunately, GlobalGiving does not have tax deductible status in Australia, but we are exploring one option for our Aussie donors however this will take some time.
Our project page goes live on the Global Giving website on June 10th and to convert our temporary status to permanent membership we need your help:
- We need the equivalent of US$5000 in donations (AU$7200) via the GlobalGiving platform from a minimum of 40 donors between Monday June 10th and Friday June 28th.
- During the 2 week Accelerator campaign regular monthly donations will count twice for the purposes of donor numbers which means that 20 commitments of monthly donations equates to 40 donors.
- All commitments of regular monthly donations up to US$200/AU$290 pledged during this time will be matched dollar for dollar by GlobalGiving after the third automatic payment.
- June 20th (USA)/June 21st (Australia/UK) is Bonus Day. All donations made on this date will increase the possibility of us receiving additional funding from GlobalGiving.
Everything comes with a price tag, and GlobalGiving does have administration and processing fees which vary depending on whether the donor is a US or UK resident, or comes from somewhere else in the world. These however reduce once the organisation raises $5000.
If you live in US or UK or live in Australia and are happy to make a one off donation to help us become a permanent member of the Global Giving family go to www.globalgiving.org between June 10th and 28th. Click on the ‘Explore Projects’ tab and search for Roads to Rehab – Nepal. Our project ID number is 61588.
Whilst you can make a donation at any time after this date, you have until June 28th to make an impact on our ability to become a permanent member of the GlobalGiving community.
