The vision of UniversalGiving ( is to “Create a World Where Giving and Volunteering Are a Natural Part of Everyday Life.” “Our policy is to have 100% of each donation made on our site go directly to the cause,” says Pamela Hawley, Founder and CEO of UniversalGiving.

“We pass the money through to our NGO (non-governmental organizations) partners to make sure the money reaches those who need it most. This means our operating expenses have to be covered by other means. No More Poverty’s support will help us continue to provide valuable services, connecting resources to organizations around the world.”
