Context: There are 5706 projects on the GlobalGiving webpage that people can donate to. These projects are ranked by GlobalGiving. The higher the ranking the more visibility there is on the GlobalGiving webpage and consequently the greater the possibility of a GlobalGiving donor seeing a project and then donating to it. GlobalGiving has more than 120,000 donors on its listserve plus 285 large companies whose employees are encouraged to donate to one or more of the projects.

Remarkably enough the Friends Women’s Association (FWA) is ranked number 19 out of those 5706 projects. This has meant that many of GlobalGiving’s own donors have donated to FWA. Since March of this year, FWA has had 109 donors. $10,703 donations have come from FWA supporters while $2250 has come from GlobalGiving donors. In addition, FWA has received $463 in matching funds from GlobalGiving itself. This totals $13,416.

Transforming Community for Social Change (TCSC) has a respectable rank of 182 out of 5706 projects. TCSC has had 134 donors since March this year. $12,944 has been donated by TCSC supporters while $496 has come from GlobalGiving donors. TCSC has received $1716 in matching funds from GlobalGiving.
