The Tekeshe Foundation has a chance to receive funding for its work via innovative online marketplace for philanthropy.

The Tekeshe Foundation today joined GlobalGiving’s Open Challenge, a fundraising challenge for non-profits who are doing impactful work around the world. The Tekeshe Foundation is also eligible for a permanent spot on GlobalGiving’s website,, the internationally recognized marketplace for philanthropy that connects individual donors to the causes they care most about.

GlobalGiving is opening up its network of donors and corporate partners in an effort to support non-profits like The Tekeshe Foundation  that are providing much needed support to their local communities throughout the economic downturn.

 We are excited for the chance to tap into GlobalGiving’s network of committed donors and corporate sponsors who can support our efforts to bring hope to orphans, widows and the elderly in the rural areas of Chipinge who have been impacted the most by the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Open participants will raise funds through from Septermber 1, 2010 - September 30, 2010. The three projects that raise the most will receive awards of $3,000, $2,000, and $1,000, respectively; the project receiving the most individual donations will receive an additional $3,000.

Organizations participating in the challenge can also earn a permanent spot on the GlobalGiving website if they successfully mobilize supporters to raise $4,000 from at least 50 unique donors through GlobalGiving during the contest.

If The Tekeshe Foundation wins, it will also gain free access to innovative web 2.0 fundraising tools and connect to a broad network of thousands of donors and corporate and foundation partners already engaged in the GlobalGiving network.

“Non-profits like The Tekeshe Foundation are deeply important to the wellbeing of communities all around the world, especially when folks are struggling,” said Mari Kuraishi, President and Co-Founder of GlobalGiving. “Many of our donors are looking for new opportunities to give back and we want to do everything we can to match the demand with the unbelievable need around the world. It is especially the small, grassroots efforts and creative innovators that do not have the institutional support from bigger institutions that we hope to help.”
