The GivingWay Ambassador Program

About

The GivingWay Ambassador Program was developed to connect young activists with grassroots level nonprofits across Africa, Latin America & Asia that need help realizing their missions.

 

Unlike many big charities in the US, nonprofit organizations in Developing Countries aren't connected to international funding sources and struggle every day to keep their missions alive.

 

One of their biggest challenges is that they lack connections to a global network of supporters that can fund their projects - and this is where you come in to make a real impact.

What do ambassadors do?

The GivingWay Ambassadors are on a mission to do good by empowering nonprofits on the ground. GivingWay ambassadors choose causes they are passionate about and then spread their message by engaging continuously and beneficially with their own local community. 


Ambassadors help the nonprofits by:

  • Getting more exposure and awareness for their cause.

  • Growing the nonprofit's global network and community of supporters.

  • Raising money.

How does this work?
  1. Choose a cause you care about

  2. Select a campaign to support

  3. Create a fundraiser for the campaign

  4. Promote your fundraiser, raise awareness & funds, and help wonderful dreams come to life!

 

You can easily contact the nonprofit to learn more about it and see how your skills can further support its needs.

Common Questions

Who are the nonprofits that are participating in the Ambassadors Program?


GivingWay partners with over +7,000 nonprofit organizations across 143 countries. Every organization that partners with us must be a registered nonprofit in its local country.


Of these nonprofits, a select group of organizations were carefully chosen for the Ambassadors Program. This select group works towards a variety of causes in different locations around the world, so everyone can find a cause they relate to the most. The list of nonprofits might update from time to time.




Are GivingWay Ambassadors compensated in any way?


Ambassadors don’t receive commisions or payments but are rewarded in many other ways!

1. First and foremost, ambassadors on the program make a meaningful impact in the world (karma points anyone?) 2. Ambassadors also receive an official certificate and recommendation letter with their accomplishments which they can later present when applying for college or a new job. 3. GivingWay also offers the chance of receiving Education Scholarships twice a year. Learn more about the full benefits that come with becoming a GivingWay Ambassador.




Can I choose more than one nonprofit to support?


Yes! You may choose to support as many nonprofits as you like. The more the merrier!




Can I get school credit for this activity?


Perhaps. It depends on your school. You can ask your school advisor if the GivingWay Ambassador Program is an activity which is approved by your school and counts for school credits. If it's not you can connect us with your school, and we will be happy to partner!




How am I supposed to increase the network of supporters for the nonprofit I choose?


There are plenty of ways to help the nonprofit you chose to branch out. Keep in mind that even by connecting your nonprofit to one supporter, you are already helping them out! Some ideas to help raise awareness and money for your cause: 1) Start with your immediate friends and family. Ask for their support and ask them to spread the word as well. 2) Reach out on social media. You don't have to have hundreds of followers, your social network is a great way to reach new supporters and raise awareness. 3) Reach out to your local community. Ask for support from your church/synagogue/mosque members, find supporters in a social or sport club you belong to. 4) Create a fundraising event - team up with some friends and create a bake sale / garage sale / carwash or any other idea. 5) Know any influencers? Someone famous or with many followers on social media? Ask them to put in a word with their followers and participate in your fundraising efforts.




How long is the participation in the program?


That's really up to you. You can work on it full time or spend a few minutes promoting your nonprofit once in a while. It can be a long-term thing or short term. There is no minimum amount of time required to participate in the program.




What are the requirments to become a GivingWay Ambassador?


The only requirement is that you are 16 years old or older. Other than that, there are none! Anyone can become an ambassador. You simply apply, and then start spreading the love!




How can I get a scholarship as part of the GivingWay Ambassador program?


Twice a year GivingWay will grant 2 ambassadors a scholarship as follows:

- 1 scholarship of $2,000 will be given to the ambassador that raised the highest amount of funds for GivingWay NGOs in one or more Fundraiser/s

- 1 scholarship of $1,000 will be given to 1 ambassador based on a random, sweepstakes-style drawing of all eligible ambassadors.

To be eligible to receive either of the two scholarships above, the ambassador needs to have raised at least $500 during a consecutive period of 6 months.

Payment of the scholarship will be made to the ambassador’s PayPal or bank account subject to providing GivingWay with a written confirmation of payment or enrollment in an educational institute, program, course or similar activity.
