UniversalGivingâ„¢ (http://www.universalgiving.org) is an awardwinning nonprofit organization which helps people give and volunteer with the top-performing projects across the world. People simply choose a country of interest (such as China or Thailand) and an area of interest (such as education or the environment) and find a list of vetted opportunities to which they can donate money or give their time. And we don't take any cut on donations made through our site! We help thousands of people find the most trusted and effective way to give and volunteer in more than 70 countries across the world. More than $1.5 million has been passed through the site; nearly 10,000 volunteers have volunteered. UniversalGiving Corporate (UGC) is a customized service helping companies manage their global Corporate Social Responsibility Programs. UGC creates the strategy, operations and NGO vetting to ensure their international giving and volunteering programs are successful all over the world. Our goal here is to increase corporate brand image; employee attraction/retention; and client attraction/retention, all of which help a company's bottom line while also serving the community. Sample clients include BEA and Cisco. UniversalGivingâ„¢ has been featured on the homepage of BusinessWeek and also mentioned on Oprah.com, NBC News, Christian Science Monitor, New York Times, Financial Times, CNNMoney.com, L.A. Times.
