CASE STUDY — SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES USA 

SOS Children’s Villages USA (SOS) sought out Global Impact’s expertise to help diversify its fundraising efforts within the private sector and foundations. The Global Impact team worked to define SOS’s fundable value proposition and identify specific and targeted programs and opportunities in line with the focus areas of SOS. Global Impact also reviewed SOS corporate strategy and defined parameters of what constitutes good, long-term corporate partners based on an alignment of business objectives. This provided the team with the foundational elements needed to conduct outreach. The Global Impact team then set its targeted and concentrated sales effort to work. 
 
Through this partnership, SOS was able to expand its reach to donors and quickly pursue corporate partnerships that resulted in new revenue. In three months, the organization established a funding pipeline of $500,000, in addition to a unique partnership opportunity with Procter & Gamble. Global Impact furthered the prospect knowledge that SOS had on 10 existing corporate relationships, in addition to providing research on 20 new prospects. While the project ended in the spring of 2012, it has been renewed for a second phase.
