Please note- this event is dedicated to Global Giving (June) ‘Gateway Challenge’ which involves raising £4000 pounds from 50 potential donors between 3rd of June and 3rd of July 2013. We must meet the target in order to qualify for a permanent place on the Global Giving fundraising community.
Why we are participating in the gateway challenge?
Well, Global Giving has been one of the best platforms to raise funds for small grassroot projects. The only way to join the Global Giving fundraising community is through the gateway challenge. A permanent place on global giving fundraising community means a lot for small organisation like NVF. More importantly, the challenge creates an opportunity for us to fully involve in online fundraising.
