On February 24, 2018, Juliette Gimon, a longtime supporter and former Board Chair of Global Fund for Children, passed away. Juliette joined the Board when she was just 30 years old. Her wisdom, insights, and profound concern for children helped shape Global Fund for Children, changing hundreds of thousands of young lives across the globe.
Maya Ajmera, Global Fund for Children’s Founder and former President, wrote, “Juliette lived for others—not in the clichéd sense of that phrase but in the true essence of selfless love.” Read the rest of Maya’s tribute to Juliette here.
To honor Juliette’s brave and passionate spirit, Global Fund for Children is establishing the Juliette Gimon Fund for Courageous Leadership, with support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and other donors. Annual awards from the fund—the Juliette Gimon Courage Awards—will recognize innovative grassroots organizations anywhere in the world that are positively impacting children in especially challenging economic, cultural, political, or environmental contexts.
Below are several options for contributing to the fund. If you have questions, please contact Steven Marcus at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.222.0820. On behalf of Global Fund for Children, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the courageous leaders who fight for children’s rights globally, we express our deepest gratitude.
