Hearts of Gold Foundation Earns Acceptance of World’s Largest Crowdfunding Community
CUENCA—Hearts of Gold has received the endorsement of GlobalGiving, recognized internationally as the premier crowdsourcing organization, which will allow the Cuenca foundation the opportunity to broaden its reach throughout the world.
The acceptance by GlobalGiving will allow Hearts of Gold to initiate a fundraising drive across a variety platforms to reach donors and companies from around the world. ‘This a wonderful opportunity that allows us to reach new audiences such as individuals, businesses, other foundations as well as to reinforce our message to past supporters,” said Natasha Verkley, executive director of Hearts of Gold.
Throughout March the GlobalGiving website will publicize the Hearts of Gold campaign to raise money to strengthen the capacity of Cuenca and Azuay Province community organizations through education, mentorship and mobilization. The local foundation is looking to bring in at least $5,000 to qualify for additional benefits from GlobalGiving such as tools, training and additional support.
“The money we will raise is to support our Community Assistance Program (CAP),” said Kelly Mitchell, program coordinator for Hearts of Gold. “CAP works to train grassroots organizations and their leaders to be more sustainable and impactful in the work they do. Our goal is to help these community leaders and their organizations to survive and thrive.”
