Event description


Join us for a seven-week online course designed to help you enhance your online fundraising in time for this year's year-end giving season. Are you interested in exploring what it takes to create valuable and lasting partnerships with your donors? Ever wondered how you can build a consistent and reliable base of donors?

The Academy will help you to take your online fundraising to the next level. Whether you've just completed GlobalGiving’s Accelerator training program or you've been a GlobalGiving partner for some time, any GlobalGiving Partner, Leader or Superstar is welcome to join. We’ve brought together fundraising professionals and experts in their organizations on donor communications, campaign fundraising, donor retention and more—to offer a small cohort of GlobalGiving partners personal, hands-on fundraising training.

The Academy webinars will take place on:

- Tuesdays from the 2nd October - 13th November 2018 at 1pm -2.30pm BST

- All webinars will be recorded

How to complete the Academy?

Selected participants are required to:

  • Participate in at least six of the seven webinar sessions;

  • Develop a year-end fundraising strategy to participate in GlobalGiving’s Year-End Fundraising Campaigns to raise at least $1,000;

  • Complete a survey on what you learned during the Academy.

(There will also be optional activities to complete over the course of the Academy which will help you prepare for your year-end fundraising and you'll earn GG Rewards Points for completing the above requirements.)

$50 Online Fundraising Academy Bond

We charge a $50 bond to participate in the Academy.

What is a bond?
You pay $50 as part of the application process, and your organization will receive the entire $50 back after the Academy if: you participate in at least six webinar sessions, raise $1,000 in your year-end fundraising on the GlobalGiving platform, and complete a survey on what you have learned in the process.

What if I don’t meet the Academy requirements?
GlobalGiving will retain the $50 and apply the amount towards our matching fund, which is used to fund GlobalGiving’s Bonus Days and other fundraising promotions.

Why is GlobalGiving charging a bond?
We know that you’re considering the Online Fundraising Academy because you want to invest in this area of your organization’s development, but we would like to give you a little extra incentive to stick with us and achieve that goal.

When do we get the bond back?
Once you succeed in completing the above requirements of the Academy, the $50 bond will be returned to you.
