To be eligible to sign up on GivingWay, a nonprofit:
- Must be legally registered in its local country
- Must be run by and for its local community ("grassroots level" as opposed to agents)
- May NOT run, manage or operate an orphanage or similar residential homes for children
It is our hope that members of the GivingWay community comply with our policies but we are not responsible for the activities and conduct of the nonprofits themselves. We strongly encourage volunteers to do as much research as possible and use their judgment when examining various nonprofits.
So how can I know more about a nonprofit I am interested in?
Through the GivingWay "Reviews" feature, nonprofits can receive reviews from volunteers who were actually on the ground. These Reviews serve as an excellent vetting mechanism and we urge volunteers to make this small effort for the benefit of the GivingWay community. With this, if you have a concern that any nonprofit on the platform does not comply with our policies we urge you to let us know as soon as possible so that we can look into the matter and take appropriate measures if needed.
