Selected for 2020 Project of the Month Club
PSYDEH is thrilled to be chosen by GlobalGiving (GG), the world’s leading nonprofit crowdfunding platform, as one of only 12 organizations to participate in their 2020 Project of the Month Club (POMC).
Claire Hilton, GG Marketing & Communications staffer, states, “PSYDEH was chosen by GlobalGiving staff to receive this honor out of 3000+ other nonprofit partners! Being chosen for POMC is proof that [PSYDEH] excels at your due diligence requirements and is proving impact in your community.” The criteria GG staff used when voting for PSYDEH’s sustainability project as January’s high-impact project include:
- Actively demonstrates a high level of effectiveness and engagement with the GlobalGiving community
- Provides regular high-quality, substantive, and informative project reports to donors
- Has the capacity to absorb the generous funding from Project of the Month gifts
- Has not before been featured as a Project of the Month on GlobalGiving
POMC membership benefits include much-needed marketing across GG’s global network and monthly investment in our project split among the 12 POMC members.
PSYDEH Senior Advisor Damon Taylor explains that POMC funds will supplement 2020 work. “Sustained impact lies at the heart of PSYDEH’s work strategy and spending. This donation will help PSYDEH to hire a Coordinator of Sustainability and maybe even a Coordinator of Social Impact–who help us leverage the POMC investment into successfully diversifying funding streams in 2020-2021, finally securing our tax-deductible status in Mexico, and creating the social impact data points we need to improve as an organization and attract win-win collaborations.”
GG’s POMC reflects GG’s desire to lift up nonprofit partners that show they value feedback from their community and are doing their best to be a community-led organization. POMC membership affirms that PSYDEH is seen by a global audience that our work is integrated with community needs and values.
