NGOs monthly news overview – April

One more month has passed, so let’s see what happens in the world of non-profit and non-governmental organizations in the United States and Europe.

So, let’s start with the world’s famous social media and its volunteer achievements.

During the existence of Facebook fundraising system, they gathered over $5 billion. Since the online platform began promoting donations in 2015, Facebook’s fundraising activities have raised a total of $5 billion for non-commercial and private purposes. “In 2015, the Ice Bucket Challenge inspired for the first-generation funds (fundraising) on Facebook,” Facebook non-profit manager Caitlin Yankovsky. Its latest innovative technology was launched in December 2020, which allowed Facebook users to raise funds in its stream of channels, making it more influential than Instagram Stories or Live stream.

Numerous innovations on Facebook are funded to help facilitate grants. Tweets include donation opportunities and simpler social stock campaigns. Facebook provides cost processing when donations are provided by nonprofits. Facebook’s priorities changed during the first years of fundraising. During 2016 and 2017, the main categories were health and mental health. In 2018, the problems come to equality and civil justice.

Until 2019, environmental problems and elimination of the consequences of natural disasters collected, including important means of victims of the “Dorian” Hurricane and a strong earthquake in Albania. In 2020, environmental problems shared first place with the humanitarian crisis. Taking into account the diverse nature of Coronavirus Pandemic’s fundraising, such as medical research, small business recovery, and the need for personal protective equipment, fundraising has begun to mitigate the impact of CoviD-19, is a challenge, said Jankowski. He hopes that the answer to the pandemics in different ways, as well as public concern, is still an important Facebook fundraising effort for 2021.

Social networks as tools for communication
