Giving portfolio for donors aiming to make a big impact

Nonprofit & Social Cause

Earlier this month we wrote about, a non-profit that allows donors to support all their favourite organisations from a single location and with a single monthly payment. Launched in January by, the Thousand Pound Club also facilitates one-stop giving, but is exclusively for donors willing to commit at least GBP 1,000 to support a personalised portfolio of well-vetted international charity projects. Those wishing to join the Thousand Pound Club complete an online questionnaire detailing their interests, passions and charitable preferences. GlobalGiving then proposes a set of charitable projects to be supported through the applicant’s “Giving Portfolio”. Applicants review the portfolio, make changes to the selection if desired, and then activate it by sending in their donation cheque. Members of the Thousand Pound Club can log in to their account to read regular email updates on the progress of their projects and find out exactly what a difference their donations are making. One to get involved in, or to emulate for a new model of major giving in your part of the world?
