A look at our impact in 2023

The power of the GlobalGiving community shined in 2023 as an example of what is possible when generosity and humanity come first.

Amid the formidable challenges of war, extreme poverty, and entrenched inequality, everyday giving is declining. Yet, the GlobalGiving community raised more than $112M for 8,459 charitable projects in 168 countries in 2023. The world’s largest music venue—the Great Strahov Stadium in Prague—would be needed to hold the 219,236 generous people who gave through GlobalGiving!

More than 21 years since GlobalGiving was founded, it is imperative to continue to break ground. Because aid and philanthropy is far from fair, and the people with the best solutions to the world’s toughest problems are chronically left out.

Community-led organizations are agile, connected, and flexible, yet just a sliver of aid dollars reach them—an appalling 2% or less, historically.

Compounding matters, the same large organizations and a small handful of countries consistently get the biggest piece of the pie.

Meanwhile, developing countries give $3 trillion more to the rest of the world than they get back, and in the United States, Black-led organizations have 76% less assets than their white-led peers.

Frankly, we have a lot of work to do to continue to inspire people everywhere to give generously and diversely—whether from the phone in the palm of their hand or from their seat in the boardroom.

To ensure more stories of generosity can be written, for many more years to come, GlobalGiving has developed a five-year strategy to build the next generation of generosity, and we can’t do it without you. 

Learn more about GlobalGiving’s five-year strategy and the initiatives that will push the boundaries of borderless philanthropy in a reflection on 2023 and a preview of our collective impact yet to come.

I hope you will continue to help us write our future story in 2024 and beyond.

With gratitude for your partnership,

Victoria Vrana
GlobalGiving CEO
