All CHMI-profiled non-profit programs are invited to enter [GlobalGiving’s](http://www.globalgiving.org/) online fundraising [Open Challenge](http://www.globalgiving.org/open-challenge-nomination/). Since GlobalGiving’s inception, more than 4,000 organizations have raised **nearly $58 million USD** using the platform and **you can apply to join now** using your affiliation with the Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI).
[CHMI is partnering with GlobalGiving](http://www.globalgiving.org/aboutus/partners.html#21b) to **support your fundraising efforts!** GlobalGiving is an innovative online fundraising platform for nonprofits of all sizes all around the world.
