General Donation

This December we are excited to announce a $10,000 matching challenge! An anonymous donor has made a $10,000 pledge to help GO identify, fund, and train amazing leaders that have the capacity to end poverty in their communities.

GO has learned that investing in leaders who have the capacity to end poverty in their communities is the most effective and efficient poverty strategy. It's about breaking cycles of dependency and creating circles of opportunity.

When we started Groundwork Opportunities, we made a bold and ambitious promise — 100% of public donations would go directly to the field to fund leaders. We'd find another way to cover our operating expenses, even going so far as to reimburse credit card fees when donations were made online. Your support paves the way for us to continue doing what many said was impossible: scale the organization using our 100% model to empower leaders around the world to end poverty in their communities.

GO's staff and volunteers work hard to ensure every dollar you donate is used efficiently.
Today, for every $1 donated to operate GO, we can raises over $6 for our leaders around the world.

The Power of Their Idea

100% Different

When we first started GO, one of our goals was to renew people’s faith in charity by promising full transparency and donating 100% of all personal donations directly to the cause. How do we accomplish this? A group of generous corporate sponsors and foundation grants help pay for the everyday costs of running the organization so that you don’t have to. This leaves your money to go where it is needed most – to our grassroots development projects. In fact we’re so passionate about our 100% model that we even pay your credit card fees out of our own pockets. It’s time to start believing in charity again.
