Public Interest Registry, the nonprofit operator of the .org, .ngo and .ong domains, has announced partnerships with GlobalGiving and Network for Good to create new donation opportunities for non-government organisations (NGOs).
Upon registering for a validated .ngo and .ong domain, NGOs can create a profile page on OnGood, an online community that gives NGOs a place to raise awareness, funds and support for their missions, and display GlobalGiving and Network for Good Widgets that seamlessly link to partner services and easily facilitate donations.
GlobalGiving and Network for Good join Ammado as OnGood donation partners. With a combined total of more than 1.7 million NGOs currently using their platforms, ammado, GlobalGiving and Network for Good will help expand the capabilities of OnGood and empower NGOs through both donation facilitation and resource sharing. Each organisation’s Giving Widgets are compatible with international currencies, languages and payment tools, and NGOs can display Giving Widgets on their OnGood profiles with just a few simple steps at no additional cost.
“Receiving and managing donations lies at the heart of every nonprofit’s success, so it should be possible for donors to give to any charity, anywhere, anytime,” said Bill Strathmann, CEO of Network for Good. “We are pleased to partner with Public Interest Registry to further help nonprofits maximise their impact by becoming better, smarter fundraisers.”
Additionally, validated NGOs that choose to leverage the GlobalGiving and Network for Good Giving Widgets will benefit from access to their extensive nonprofit and donor networks, as well as additional resources that help nonprofits better communicate their stories to audiences that share their mission.
“We are excited about the opportunity to work with Public Interest Registry to give validated nonprofits easier access to the information, tools and donors they need to be effective and make our world a better place,” said John Hecklinger, chief program officer, GlobalGiving. “This partnership extends our reach, allowing us to more easily identify organisations that are poised to solve societal problems and help them increase their impact.”
