What is GlobalGiving?
GlobalGiving is the first and largest crowdfunding community connecting nonprofits, companies, and donors around the world. We make it possible for local organizations to access the tools, training, and support they need to become more effective. To learn more about how your nonprofit or company can partner with GlobalGiving, please visit www.globalgiving.org.
How does it work?
Donating to a Global Giving charity is just like buying a voucher/instant gift card on the Reward Gateway site. Employees can select the amount they want to donate by using earned Cashback.
Please note: there is a minimum of £5 for UK or $10 for US/AUS for the donations.
Where is it available?
Available to AUS, US and UK employees
How many charities or causes are available?
Over 5000 non-profit projects and organizations around the world.
How do we know the charities are legitimate?
GlobalGiving has vetted more than 10,000 organizations. To ensure each of them meets GlobalGiving's guidelines—and those of our partners—they evaluate the legitimacy, reputation and impact of organizations no matter where they do their work.
How much of an employee’s donation goes to the charity?
100% of the employee's donation goes directly to the charity cause. Reward Gateway covers administration cost in full.
What are the tax implications for employees?
GlobalGiving is not able to issue a receipt for tax purposes for recipients of GlobalGiving’s gift cards.The employees redeeming GlobalGiving Vouchers/Gift Cards are not eligible for any tax benefit unless donating above and beyond the value of the GlobalGiving Voucher/Gift Card.
Who do employees call/contact if there’s a problem with the process? Reward Gateway or GlobalGiving?
Employees should contact the Reward Gateway Helpdesk if their gift card hasn't shown in their Account: Instant Vouchers or eGift Cards history.
For all other questions or concerns -- for example, help with using the e-gift card code -- employees should contact Global Giving.
Does the GlobalGiving Voucher/Gift Card expire?
Yes, all GlobalGiving’s gift card codes will expire after 10 months from the date of issue. When the card expires, any remaining funds on the card will be donated to the GlobalGiving Fund that will be used to provide matching funds and other grant incentives for the projects on the GlobalGiving site.
