Global Giving: Data Privacy Compliance in Changing World

Company

GlobalGiving empowers charitable donors to make secure, tax-deductible donations to trusted, community-led organizations worldwide. Since 2002, GlobalGiving has facilitated over $876 million in donations from nearly 1.8 million donors, supporting more than 35,000 projects across 175+ countries.

Challenge

With the 2018 implementation of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the horizon, the internationally-focused GlobalGiving faced the imperative of understanding and achieving compliance with the sweeping new data privacy law. As an organization boasting a sizable European donor base, GlobalGiving needed to take the necessary steps to align its data collection and management practices with GDPR standards.

Solution

We educated GlobalGiving about the implications of GDPR for their organization and drafted a privacy policy compliant with the new regulations.

Impact

Thanks to our collaboration, GlobalGiving successfully adapted their data practices to align with GDPR before the regulation went into effect. This enabled them to maintain uninterrupted business operations and continue serving their European donor base after GDPR went live.
