Global Impact, the leader in growing global philanthropy, announced today a new addition to its partnership with Save the Children. Utilizing Global Impact’s innovative charitable giving tool, Growfund, Save the Children’s new Breakthrough Innovation Fund will be a featured giving opportunity available to thousands of potential donors in the Growfund community, and will provide Save the Children’s existing donors with access to a revolutionary new donor-advised fund (DAF) product.

Growfund is a no-minimum DAF that operates like a personal foundation. Contributions can be saved or invested, grown over time and granted to the charities and causes that matter most to the donor. Unlike other DAFs that require sizeable contributions before the funds are invested, Growfund contributions can be invested starting with the first dollar.

"We are delighted to expand Save the Children's partnership with Global Impact through the Breakthrough Innovation Fund,” said Carolyn Miles, President and CEO of Save the Children. “Save the Children’s innovation initiative actively invests in the human capital and expertise from across our global organization and our partners, allocating funding for the most promising new ideas that will drive progress for children in health, education and protection from harm. This modern giving platform will allow our supporters to fund unique innovations, often with the private sector, and generate the bold new approaches needed to give what every child deserves: a future."

As a featured giving opportunity, Save the Children’s Breakthrough Innovation Fund is prominently displayed to the Growfund community, and is available to users as they recommend a grant from their account. Donations to the Breakthrough Innovation Fund foster new partnership models, program approaches, products and services to ensure that all children survive to their fifth birthday, receive a quality education and are protected from all forms of violence. Additionally, Save the Children donors now have a strategic means to invest and grow their gifts using the Growfund platform.

"Global Impact is committed to using Growfund to democratize philanthropy and provide opportunities for donors to be more strategic with their giving,” said Scott Jackson, President and CEO of Global Impact. "This tremendous partnership will allow individual donors at all income levels to have the same DAF tool that a major philanthropist would have to support Save the Children.”
