Our goal at GlobalGiving is to enable donors to support any bona fide, quality project in the world - and, conversely, to enable any bona fide project in the world to seek funding from the global community.
Most projects on GlobalGiving are currently vetted by one of our project partners - a group of 40+ leading organizations with operations in 100 countries around the world.
We are now piloting a community-based vetting process, whereby the GlobalGiving community itself will be able to select new projects to be listed in the GlobalGiving marketplace. This initiative is called the GlobalGiving Open.
Voting in the GlobalGiving Open is fun, free, and fast. Plus you can even win an iPod if you predict the winners better than anyone else. Check it out and let me know what you think.
