What is The Global Impact Fund?
The Global Impact Fund supports current activities, and provides us with the flexibility needed to adapt and respond quickly to new opportunities, and to meet new needs. These venture-type funds can be used for programs, research, new initiatives, and capital operations.
Through The Global Impact Fund, donors are able to make a significant impact on each of our programs and initiatives.
What programs does The Global Impact Fund support?
Our Global Initiative for Child Health & Well-Being increases the recognition, identification and treatment of child victims of sexual abuse and exploitation through research, advocacy and training.
Our Global Missing Children’s Center protects children around the world from going missing or being abducted by providing resources for governments, law enforcement, NGOs, and families on prevention as well as the appropriate actions to take in the event a child does go missing.
Our Global Training Academy provides resources for those on the front lines of protecting children around the world, with a focus on giving law enforcement, educators, parents, medical professionals, and other child protection specialists tools to combat child sexual abuse, identify exploitation and find missing children.
The Koons Family Institute on International Law & Policy combats child abduction, sexual abuse and exploitation on multiple fronts by conducting and commissioning original research into the status of child protection laws around the world, creating replicable legal tools, promoting best practices, building international coalitions and collaborating with partners to identify and measure threats to children and ways ICMEC can enact possible change.
