Global Impact was founded in 1956, when four international charities joined together to form a federation to participate in federal workplace giving. By the 1980s, the number of member charities had grown to approximately 50, and the organization was also representing its member charities in state government and private sector workplace giving campaigns.
In the 1990s, the organization expanded into local government workplace giving campaigns and began to offer add-on services such as state registration and cooperative advertising to boost the visibility of member charities. In 1996, Global Impact was named the Principal Combined Fund Organization for the Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas, which began the organization’s long-history of helping to administer the federal government’s annual workplace giving campaign.
Throughout the next two decades Global Impact continued to expand its work with the Combined Federal Campaign, as well as with local, state and private sector workplace giving campaigns—and today represents member charities in nearly 300 campaigns around the country.
Starting in 2010, Global Impact began expanding its services to support charitable ventures for greater giving. In October 2019, to further enhance its service offerings and geographic reach, Global Impact merged with Geneva Global, a certified B Corporation offering complementary lines of business. Together the organizations have a geographic reach that spans the Americas, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia, and have collectively raised and influenced billions of dollars in philanthropic giving.
