A simple and sustainable way to give regularly.
What are Global Projects
Global Projects are a special category of B1G1 projects that help you make an even greater impact in our world. What sets it apart from our ‘regular’ projects is that the Global Projects are not tied to any specific country or even WorthyCause. Instead, when you give towards a Global Project, you are committing to make that impact anywhere in the world. For example, when you give towards the project to ‘Plant a Tree in the World’, your giving could go towards any of the projects on B1G1 that plant trees.
Global Projects allow you to achieve three important things: simplicity, sustainability, and stability.
B1G1 Global Projects make it easier and simpler for you to choose a project with a specific outcome.

For example, let’s say, you want to plant a tree. There are many projects in B1G1that plant trees and so instead of trying to choose one project out of many options, you can pick the Global Project ‘Plant a Tree in the World’ and let us maximize the impact of giving by distributing the funds to multiple projects indifferent countries.
Giving to the Global Projects makes your giving more sustainable.

Often in B1G1, the lowest cost project among similar projects tends to receive much more support. But of course, the cost per impact does not equate to the importance of the impact. We want to make sure every project in B1G1 receives good support in a more balanced way and in fact, often times we encourage businesses to look at the projects that cost more because the fact is, less support will be given to them though they are doing incredible things. The Global Projects help us ensure all projects get funded sustainably. 
Your giving to Global Projects is specifically designed to create stability

Individual projects may experience change at times - the cost of projects may change or certain project activities may even be paused when enough funds are raised.  B1G1only lists projects with at least 3 years of track-record and a long-term focus but even then, some changes are unavoidable. It’s important for projects to evolve too! 

But understandably, these changes may affect your plan if you are giving to specific projects and communicating your giving activities actively with others.  Giving to Global Projects insulates you from the effects of changes because you are not just giving to one specific project. This way, your Giving Stories become more stable.
How do Global Projects work?
When you give to a Global Project, that amount is added together with all the givings made by other Business for Good Members to the same Global Project. At the end of the month, the total amount is divided equally amongst all the individual eligible projects. In this way, we ensure that all projects that need funding are receiving the support they need.
How does this benefit me?
When you create a Giving Story, you have to choose one project to tie to your chosen business activity. However, there is always the chance, no matter how small, that your chosen project may be delisted (*there can be many reasons for it which we cover here).  Because the Global Project spreads the giving out amongst a number of individual projects, there is never the risk that the Global Project will be delisted or not be able to take on more funding.  

You can now also make a difference in multiple different countries with just one GlobalProject.

current global projects

Here are some current Global Projects and what's inside each project.
Clean water and sanitation are basic humans needs however up to 29% of the world population still lack access to basic drinking water. With proper infrastructure and facilities, we can put proper water-related ecosystems into place. Your support provides clean drinking water to communities throughout the world that are water scarce, providing access to a basic human right.
Quality education is one of the most powerful and proven vehicles to achieve sustainable development. It improves health and livelihoods, as well as contributes to social stability. That is why Quality Education is on of the Global Goals. Your support provides access to education for children all over the globe!
Trees clean the air we breathe and serve as an important carbon sink for our emissions. A fully grown tree can absorb up to 21kg of carbon dioxide per year. Your support through this project plants tree saplings throughout the world which will eventually become fully-grown at a success rate of up to 85%, and in some cases also provide income for the local community.
