A Letter From Our Executive Director
As the Executive Director of a global nonprofit, people often ask me what they can do to help. My response is always, “Just do something.” If every single person carried out one small act—whether that’s giving a day of your time to volunteer, spreading awareness for issues that matter, or giving just $10 to a cause you care about—the world would be a much better place. If everyone does something, no one has to do everything.
That’s what I love about the GreaterGood community. Your dedication to help, your passion for a variety of causes, your daily actions, showcase you understand that when our whole community comes together, and everyone takes action, we can accomplish big things. This year as we celebrate 10 Years of Giving Where It Matters, I couldn’t be more humbled by and proud of the impact we’ve had, together.
YOU are the reason we’ve been here for 10 years – thank you.
We celebrate our 10th birthday on September 19th, and we invite you to join us in celebrating. Below, you will find some of the accomplishments and milestones that have been reached together over the past decade. We hope you will share this page with your friends and family on our birthday. We also encourage you to #Give10 to the cause you care most about and share with your community why you give.
We work hard to provide impactful ways to Give Where It Matters® to protect people, pets, and the planet. When you #Give10 you make a statement to the world that you are a part of a community that cares, acts, and changes the world together.
Executive Director, GreaterGood.org
When you make a donation to GreaterGood.org, you truly Give Where It Matters®. We pride ourselves on running and partnering with world class programs that have the most impact for the cause you care about most.
And so, to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we ask you to #Give10 to the cause you care most about. By giving $10 to help people, pets, or the planet you are making a statement that you are a part of a community that cares. When you’ve made your gift, share your impact on social media to spread the word.
$10 can ship 10 books to children in need, provide over 100 meals to homeless veterans, or feed a Burmese refugee for a full month. It can fund research dedicated to fighting breast cancer, autism, and Alzheimer's. $10 can do so much to help people around the world in need.
$10 can provide over 100 pounds of nutritious pet food to hungry shelter animals. It can send two care packages filled with food, bedding, vaccines, and toys to a homeless dog or cat in need. It can vaccinate 4 dogs rescued from the illegal meat trade. $10 can do so much to help animals in need.
