ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 4, 2018 – Today, Global Impact, a leader in growing global philanthropy, launched its “Why #GiveGlobal?” campaign to encourage individuals and businesses to engage globally through donating, advocating and volunteering. The campaign runs through Nov. 30, 2018 and the campaign website is

Campaign elements include a #GiveGlobal infographic, #GiveGlobal IQ quiz, and “Why #GiveGlobal?” contest,  as well as spotlights on some of Global Impact’s charity and corporate partners that are making significant contributions to improving the lives of vulnerable people in the United States and around the world through their programs.

“With a continued focus on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, through this campaign we wanted to provide a fun and engaging way for people to learn about philanthropy, the importance of giving globally, and ways they can increase their social impact,” said Scott Jackson, president and CEO of Global Impact. “Today, there is even more need for individual and private sector giving if we are going to achieve the Global Goals by 2030, and by giving globally we can have a far-reaching impact on reducing poverty, improving health and helping to create a better world.”

For the campaign, Global Impact’s partners were asked to answer questions about what giving global means to them and why it is important. The contest component of the campaign asks the public to answer similar questions, in order to win one of three $250 prizes to open and seed a Growfund account. Growfund is Global Impact’s no minimum contribution donor-advised fund that operates like your own personal foundation—helping you donate strategically and with more impact.
