Happy New Year 2018!

As we start the new year, we cannot help but reflect upon how far we’ve come and how incredible our volunteers are. Givology is still 100% volunteer-driven, which means that the funds we raise go directly and transparently to our supported education projects and students. While others may have doubted that Givology could keep growing when not a single person takes salary like most non-profit organizations of our size, here we are today, almost 10 years later.

We’d like to thank all our volunteers across local high schools, colleges, and community chapters, as well as individual interns, volunteers, and fellows. It’s been amazing to see how much each person can contribute with consistent volunteering. In aggregating volunteer hours across our full volunteer base, we’re able to accomplish our campaigns and raise awareness and funding for our grassroots partners.

[b]Projects[/b]: 2017 was a year of experimentation with regards to our marketing and fundraising initiatives. Here are a few of our favorite campaigns:
[ul][li][url=https://www.givology.org/~givologystaff/blog/329540/]Humans of Givology[/url], which was inspired by the amazing work of photographer Brandon Stanton, the man behind Humans of New York. Every person, every student, every individual can be inspiring under the best and worst of circumstances. We believe everyone deserves to be educated so they can drive exponential impact in their communities and the world[/li][li][url=https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/givology-impact-series-podcast/id1271456774?mt=2]Givology podcasts[/url], a series we launched to help probe the concept of impact and impact measurement in philanthropy. We interview and feature amazing leaders like Moritz Piatti, a Senior Economist at the World Bank or Catherine Hollander, Research Analyst at Givewell, who are passionate about measurement and assessment. We also help tell the stories of highly respected non-profit organizations like our interview with Vicki Clarke from Heifer International. There’s no better way to start or end your day than to think about the bigger picture through our podcast series[/li][li][url=https://www.facebook.com/Givology/videos/10154262292045380/]How I learned[/url], a social media campaign that amplifies the hundreds of student voices sharing how (or from who) they learned. Whether through a text tweet or visual facebook post, we aimed to connect students around the world through their shared stories about education from the conditions of classrooms, to how they go to school, to curriculum content, to all the people related to it.[/li][/ul]
We are so proud to be leading and building alongside our Givology community this whole journey, and we are excited to welcome 2018 in celebration of our tenth year.

In thinking about our resolutions for this year, we commit to the same degree of transparency and focus on high-impact grassroots projects, but we have several initiatives underway in modernizing our website and making our systems more user friendly for all of you. We look forward to sharing with you our developments to come!

Warmest Wishes,
Jenn, Joyce, and the Givology Team
