When you choice the Project you desire to donate to, especially our project of the Month membership, you will be charged for the first month’s payment, and will receive a receipt at that time. You will receive a receipt after the initial transaction, but not after each subsequent monthly donation. However, through your Global Funding Network account, you can access your donation history at any time and get a printout or a screen-shop of your total donations made to date. And, in January of every year, we will email you an aggregated receipt for tax purposes reflecting all of your donations during the year.

Immediately you complete your transaction, your card will be charged this amount instantly, and then will automatically be charged the same amount on the same day of each month, for. recurring donations. For instance, if you set up your monthly donation on January 5th, then all future donations to the project you selected of the month will be charged to your credit card on the 5th of each subsequent month until you cancel your monthly donation. Funds collected during each calendar month will be used to make an aggregate donation to the Project of The Month for that month. So therefore, your donation will be helping the selected project of the month unless selected otherwise.
All projects on Global Funding Network are thoroughly investigated, project owner must either be a member of our parent organization or an ambassador of change with parent organization. Also all projects are thoroughly vetted for eligibility to receive grants. This means that these projects have satisfied the guidelines for international grant-making as well as the new voluntary guidelines for anti-terrorism set forth in the Patriot Act. Also, we personally visit or send a member of our team to each organization every year to check on their projects and on them in person.
You can cancel your monthly donation anytime. If you need to cancel your monthly donations, simply Login to Global Funding Network. When you are logged in, simply click “Stop/Cancel Recurring Donations” so that no more donations will be processed on your card.

Of course you can! When you give through Global Funding Network, you will fill a form where we’ll ask you to share a few pieces of information with us, like your name and email address, so that a profile can be created for you. This profile will allow you to keep track of your giving history and access project updates. Additionally, we’ll send you a receipt for every donation you make to Global Funding Network.
Yes donors can donate anonymously. We understand your desire for privacy and take it very seriously. During the check-out process, you may select to make your donation anonymously. Global Funding Network will still ask for your name, billing address, and email for tax purposes, but we won’t share any of this information with the project to which you have donated. You will still receive thank you emails and project reports if you request them, but the people behind the project will not know your name or any personal information. This is what we can do to make your donation anonymous.
