Global Impact partners with REF to help it restore North-America’s Amazon to its pristine beauty



A leader in the growing global field of philanthropy, Global Impact, is an organization that builds successful partnerships. It does so by raising resources to help the world’s most vulnerable populations by integrating a host of services such as customized secretarial and advisory services, designing campaigns, marketing, raising funds through signature campaigns, fiscal and technological services, and integrated platforms designed to serve.
 
Global Impact collaborates with more than 450 public and private organisations in order to generate funds for an alliance of more than 120 international charities.
 
It equips private as well as public organizations, to achieve their philanthropic goals through strategic counselling. Global Impact also serves as an administrator for the Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas, which is the world’s largest workplace giving campaigns.
 
Created in 1956, it has generated more than $1.7 billion in order to help the children, men and woman who are the designated as the world’s most vulnerable people.
 
Global Impact has now entered into a strategic partnership with the Restore the Earth Foundation (REF). Through this initiative, it will help support restorations of large eco-systems. In this partnership, it is aiding REF in the form of fiduciary services as well as counsel for strategic marketing. This will help REF grow as an organization as well as optimize its resources.
 
REF wants to restore the Earth’s wetland ecosystems and its essential forests. It is the only organization that is involved in large scale contiguous restorations of forests, thus providing an environmental and socio economic returns which are verifiable by third party impact accounting firms. Its current focus is the restoration of a million acres of marginal land often referred to as “North America’s Amazon”, situated in the Mississippi River Basin.
 
Its collaborative and inclusive approach ensures a large coalition of partners from the public and private sectors. Thanks to its broad approach, local communities are more receptive towards it. Its efforts not only benefit the environment but also improves the resilience, health and safety of local communities.
 
Scott Jackson, President and CEO of Global Impact puts the organization’s goal very aptly:

“Global Impact believes partnerships are the key to making impact and creating change. We are thrilled to be working with a like-minded organization and we are eager to see how our partnership can change the world.”


Global Impact has a two-pronged strategy in place to help REF with its stated mission. Firstly, it helps REF in an advisory and convener capacity: it helps REF to bridge various sectors and provides sustainable solutions for the restoration of ecosystems. Secondly, it acts as an agent providing secretarial and fiduciary services for REF, taking on much of its organizational work, so that REF can exclusively focus on the implementation of its programs. Its recent collaboration with REF resulted in the launch of a website that showcases their combined efforts towards creating a sustainable and innovative future.
PJ Marshall, REF’s co-founder and Executive Director, clarifies role and purpose:

“After Hurricane Katrina, my husband and I founded Restore the Earth Foundation to help the devastated communities, ecosystems and wildlife on the Gulf Coast. Our work with Global Impact naturally advances our goals, expanding our public-private partnerships to restore ecosystems and the services the Earth provides on which we depend. We are very excited about working with Global Impact and are confident it will help us bring our vision to fruition”
