ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11 /CSRwire/ - Global Impact, whose mission is to build partnerships and resources for the world’s most vulnerable people, released its FY15 Annual Report today. The report outlines Global Impact’s progress in the past fiscal year to grow global philanthropy. 

“The world of global philanthropy continues to evolve before our eyes, and Global Impact is leading the way in anticipating and responding to these changes,” said Scott Jackson, Global Impact president and CEO. “Our mission is to help organizations involved in charitable work—either as supporters or “doers”—respond to these developments and achieve success through integrated solutions. The challenges our clients face are significant, and no single organization can succeed on its own. We’re here to help make effective partnerships happen—leveraging resources and increasing ownership for sustainable solutions.”

In FY15, Global Impact raised over $48 million, generated nearly $25 million in employee giving pledges for our 120 charity alliance partners, and helped more than 30 corporate and nonprofit partners accomplish their philanthropic goals through advisory and secretariat services. Along with this progress, we lowered our administrative and fundraising expense ratio to 10 percent. Additional accomplishments highlighted in the report include:

  • Helping the Hilton Prize Coalition increase its impact and serving as their secretariat

  • Raising more than $287,000 to support charity partners on the ground in Nepal after the devastating earthquakes 

  • Supporting the Red Nose Day campaign for its debut in the US through awareness raising and securing participation from key constituencies

  • Increasing funds raised through employee giving to a record-breaking $24+ million

  • Establishing new Signature Funds to meet customized partner needs

  • Developing an overall strategy for the Central America Donors Forum

  • Administering the Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas, resulting in more than $8 million raised

  • Providing backbone services for Restore the Earth Foundation, an organization supporting large-scale restoration of our planet’s essential forest and wetland ecosystems

  • Creating the Syrian Refugee Fund to raise visibility and funds for organizations providing aid to refugees
