The covers of the New York Times and the Washington Post are about the race to the White House, but there’s something much more exciting going on right now in the world of philanthropy. Right now, several grassroots fundraisers are battling it out for the top fundraiser spot in America’s Giving Challenge on GlobalGiving. The top fundraisers will get $50,000 from the Case Foundation, which is sponsoring the Challenge.
On GlobalGiving, we have several fundraisers which are trying to get top position. In the last few days, there’s been a major shake up in fundraising efforts, with several long standing leaders dropping down as new fundraisers have mobilized their bases and gotten over 500 donations in the last week. I’m including links to the top six fundraisers who have gotten over 700 donations as of the time of this posting, but the Challenge doesn’t end until tomorrow, January 31, 2008, at 3 pm, so anything can change. Be sure to check out the leaderboard for the most update to date standings! Good luck to all of the fundraisers!
