“Global Impact has been and continues to be one of our best strategic partners. What started out as work on a disaster response platform for one-off instances when Team Members were impacted by natural disaster has turned into a deep collaborative work stream that continues to grow. Our work with Global Impact allows us to respond to Team Members in times of need and to communities around the world that have been impacted by natural or man-made disasters. Our relationship with Global Impact has gone well beyond disaster response to Foundation consulting, grant making and extensive reporting.”
