There are a lot of people and organizations who need help and sometimes it's hard to decide who to donate money to. Also, if you have limited means you might think that a small donation can't do much. GlobalGiving.org is a unique site that gives people the opportunity to fund smaller projects or grassroots organizations that might not be funded by traditional philanthropy groups. GlobalGiving .org has a rigorous screening process to make sure the group or project fulfill all their requirements. Donors can browse through a wide range of geographies and themes such as health, education, environment, among others -- and they know exactly how their money will be used. In addition, GlobalGiving's efficient online giving platform allows donors to connect and communicate directly with project leaders. For as little as $10.00 you can help with school lunches in Guatemala, buy mosquito nets in Africa, or help an Afghan women learn how to read. If you give them your information they will also send you progress reports on the project or group you have donated to.
They also offer something totally unique called the GlobalGiving Guarantee. GlobalGiving Guaranteed is a new program that guarantees GlobalGiving online donors a positive giving experience. The guarantee is the first program of its kind in the US and covers contributions up to $10,000. Any donor who makes an online contribution at GlobalGiving.org and is not satisfied with their giving experience will get a refund in the form of a gift certificate which they can then contribute to a different project on the site.
