ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 09 /CSRwire/ -   Global Impact, whose mission is to build partnerships and resources for the world’s most vulnerable people, today announced that it has added eight new nonprofit partners to its charity alliance, including Habitat for Humanity International. The alliance comprises nearly 130 international charities making a significant impact around the world through programs that assist an estimated 417 million people in nearly 200 countries.

Global Impact works on behalf of charity alliance partners to raise much needed unrestricted funding through private and public sector workplace giving campaigns with a variety of organizations such as Microsoft, Accenture, United Health Group, Wells Fargo and the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). In total, Global Impact raises funds through more than 400 campaigns nationwide. 

Charity alliance partners range from renowned organizations with worldwide reach to nonprofits providing essential services on a regional scale. Rigorous membership standards ensure that each organization practices sound financial management and effective program delivery.

Despite an increasingly difficult giving environment and a decline in giving in many workplace giving campaigns, Global Impact charity alliance partners collectively experienced increased year-over-year performance for the past three years. In the Combined Federal Campaign, for example, Global Impact’s revenue performance for its alliance grew 6.9 percent between 2014 and 2015, and increased by more than 8 percent the previous year. 

Global Impact’s eight new charity partners for 2016 include:

  • ARCHIVE Global, using housing design as a key component to improve health worldwide.

  • Habitat for Humanity International, helping families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

  • International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), ensuring the development of safe, effective, accessible, preventive HIV vaccines for use throughout the world.

  • Malaika, empowering Congolese girls and their communities through education.

  • Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), saving lives at sea by providing professional search and rescue to people who are in distress.

  • Variety – The Children’s Charity International, serving children who live and grow up with a serious illness, disability or disadvantage.

  • World Bicycle Relief, specializing in large-scale, comprehensive bicycle distribution programs to aid poverty relief in developing countries around the world.

  • Worldwide Fistula Fund, healing and rebuilding the lives of girls and women in sub-Saharan Africa who suffer from obstetric fistula while increasing accessibility of expert obstetric care to improve childbirth safety and reproductive health.

“The addition of these eight new charity partners bolsters our network as we work together to fight poverty, improve health and education, respond to disasters and support communities in need,” said Joseph Mettimano, Global Impact Vice President of Marketing and Campaign Engagement. “It is a privilege to be able to support these organizations and tell their story in workplaces around the country each year.”
