[E4C5] Universal Giving – How to Launch a Global Nonprofit & Attract the Best Volunteers



Universal Giving on How to Launch a Global Nonprofit & Attract the Best VolunteersPamela Hawley is a social entrepreneur from the nonprofit side of the fence. She’s the founder and CEO of UniversalGiving, the only nonprofit marketplace that allows you to Give 100% of your donation directly to the cause. It’s the best way to give freely — where all your money goes directly to the top nonprofit leaders who need it most, in the most remote parts of the world.

One of the great things about donating through UniversalGiving is the trust you can have that your money will be well spent. That’s because they vet every nonprofit through their stringent, proprietary Quality Model, to weed out organizations that are ineffective, or even fraudulent, and identify the charities that make the biggest positive impact in the communities they serve.

Through Universal Giving, you can give can give gifts of books, backpacks, and computers, help rescue Nepalese girls from captivity or provide computer literacy training to a girl in rural Ghana, and more. Or you can help fund an entire project, like Emergency Relief for victims of the Typhoon Haiyan disaster in the Philippines.

In this insightful interview, Pamela will share seasoned advice from the social enterprise trenches on:

  • The 1 key action you need to take to make the transition from startup idea to launch.
  • The pieces of the funding puzzle you’ll need to have in place to attract startup capital.
  • What qualities you and your organization will need to have in order to boost trust & confidence with potential funders.
  • Universal Giving’s innovative income strategy that enables them to pass through 100% of donations directly to the cause.
  • The step-by-step process they use to attract the best volunteers & interns.
  • And more!
