Global Giving US Open Access Challenge

Social Edge has the following news:
You are invited to refer or list a project and raise funds in the US Open Access Challenge, which runs from June 8 - 30. Through the Challenge, projects have the opportunity to earn a permanent spot on the GlobalGiving website if they can mobilize supporters to raise $4,000 from at least 50 unique donors during this time period. Projects meeting these thresholds can also compete for additional funding: the three projects receiving the most funding will receive additional awards of $3,000, $2,000, and $1,000, respectively; the project receiving the most number of donations will receive an additional $3,000.
This is a great opportunity for a non-profit to raise awareness for their efforts and to gain access to a global network of donors.

  1. Thanks for helping getting the word out on GlobalGiving's American Open (yes, we changed the name to avoid sounding like a sporting event!). We've also extended the deadline so you have until May 21 to nominate an innovative project doing work in the US. (from joan @ globalgiving)
