According to Giving USA, international giving reached $15.77 billion in 2010, an 11.4 percent increase from 2009, despite an economic downturn. These increases can be partly attributed to one of Global Washington’s members: Global Impact, an organization that raises funds to meet critical humanitarian needs around the world. Since 1956, Global Impact has raised more than 1.4 billion dollars for the world’s most vulnerable people.

Through its innovative partner solutions programs, disaster relief fund, workplace giving programs, and Federal campaign management, Global Impact offers donors a variety of ways to give effectively and efficiently.

Millions of people have benefited since Global Impact began in 1956, and the work continues. [Read more]
