In 2006, UniversalGiving pioneered Community Based Journalism, which is an innovative program that drives viewers to serve the global community after reading an article. We help people take action by providing vetted giving and volunteer opportunities under articles of our media partners.
Once someone reads an article, they can take action by clicking on UniversalGiving’s opportunities to give and volunteer worldwide. For example, your audience might read about a crisis situation in Africa. They will be educated through your quality news stories, and can take action through UniversalGiving’s quality opportunities, which are linked beneath the article. UniversalGiving will help you maintain your brand as a trusted global leader and increase your viewer-base and readership.
