The GlobalGiving Accelerator is a virtual training program and crowdfunding campaign that will help us take our fundraising to the next level. After a one-week training curriculum, we will be entered into an Accelerator campaign where we will be required to raise at least $5,000 total from a minimum of 40 different donors within 18 days period in order to graduate and secure a permanent fundraising spot on the GlobalGiving platform.
