Every new idea needs a champion. That’s the role we like to play for our grassroots organizations. We are the first major US-based investor for every two out of three partners.
We identify innovative organizations and invest during the critical early stages of their development, when they can most benefit from our support. Eighty percent of our grassroots partners have annual budgets under $100,000 when they receive their first GFC grant.
On average, our partners’ budgets triple during their GFC partnership, enabling them to expand and improve their programs for greater impact on children’s lives.
We measure our partners’ progress as we help them grow their visibility, strengthen their organizational capacity, and boost their budget size. Roughly 91% of our graduating partners meet or exceed our expectations for growth and success.
Global Fund for Children (GFC) UK Trust, created in 2006, is a UK registered charity (UK charity number 1119544). We work to generate vital income, create new fundraising opportunities, and raise awareness of the invaluable work of GFC’s grassroots grantees. Our aim is to extend the reach of GFC in the United Kingdom, Europe, and beyond.
