(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Alexandria, VA - November 29, 2011 - Global Impact, whose mission is to assure help for the world’s most vulnerable people, released its 2011 Annual Report today, Partnerships: For People, For Impact, For Giving, For Results. The report outlines Global Impact’s sustained effort to meet critical humanitarian needs around the world, and underscores Global Impact’s success in building strategic partnerships and alliances with the corporations, non-governmental organizations and government entities to increase charitable giving and strengthen donor engagement.

“Over the last 12 months, Global Impact focused on establishing partnerships to help communities hardest hit by prolonged poverty and limited educational and health care resources, in addition to the impact of disasters, be they natural or manmade,” said Renée Acosta, President, Global Impact. “Looking forward, Global Impact will continue to seek innovative partners to meet immediate needs and to address long-term sustainable change for the people who need help the most.”

The annual report highlights Global Impact’s successes over the previous year, which include:

  • $110.4 million raised

  • A new Accelerator Fund to support strategic investments in unfunded or underfunded international programs

Global Impact’s practices resulted in a series of ratings, including a Charity Navigator Four-Star Rating for exceptional fiscal management for the sixth consecutive year, a distinction achieved by only five percent of rated charities, and Seal Holder status from the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance for the sixth consecutive year for meeting each of the 20 standards for charity accountability.
