Global Impact stands in the gap to serve partners, donors and those in need

2017 Annual Report released

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 13, 2017 – Global Impact, whose mission is to build partnerships and resources for the world’s most vulnerable people, today released its fiscal year 2017 Annual Report, which outlines the organization’s achievements, such as helping its more than 100 international charity partners raise $22.6 million in funds. The report’s theme of “standing in the gap” speaks to the ways in which Global Impact bridges generosity and need. 

“Global Impact’s work is about connecting donors with the causes they care about, helping organizations succeed and ensuring support for people in the developing world,” said Scott Jackson, president and CEO of Global Impact. “It is in this capacity that we stand in the gap to meet these challenges and provide innovative approaches to serve as a trusted partner to organizations and donors alike.”
 
Documented in the report are Global Impact’s fiscal year 2017 financials and other accomplishments, including: 
  • Helping our more than 100 international charity partners raise $22.6 million in funds.
  • Raising more than $54.5 million in 2016 for thousands of charities through its four administered Combined Federal Campaigns, and continuing its role through implementation of the 2017 campaign. 
  • Partnering with CARDONE Industries for the last two years to administer the CARDONE Employee Care Fund, a program that has supported employees who have experienced financial hardship with more than $350,000 in assistance. 
  • Increasing visibility for global philanthropy through thought leadership roles at events across the country. 
  • Enhancing its proprietary tool Growfund, a platform that operates like a 401(k) plan or a personal foundation to help people at any income level support their favorite charities. 
  • Promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the work of some of our charity partners through the release of President and CEO Scott Jackson’s book, “Take Me with You,” which tells the story of Jackson’s life and highlights his personal philosophy of making a choice to live in a way that improves life for others.
