Global Impact


Why isn't this organization rated?

We previously evaluated this organization, but they have changed their operational model. Because our methodology compares current financials to previous financials, and the comparative financial information has changed based on the new model, we can not appropriately rate them at this time. Once we have enough years of financial data under the new model, we plan to once again post an evaluation.

How can I conduct my own review of this organization?

While there are many factors that go into a complete Charity Navigator evaluation, there are some simple steps you can take to conduct your own review of this organization. Access our guide, Evaluating Charities Not Currently Rated by Charity Navigator.

Archived Donor Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing Donor Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Donor Advisory for Global Impact in June 2013 because the Donor Advisory was in place for more than one year (since May 1, 2012) and because the reason for the Advisory has been resolved. Specifically: 

  • The Office of Inspector General has officially closed the audit process and considers the matter resolved.

Charity Navigator had published a Donor Advisory for this  charity because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • On April 2, 2012, the Federal Times reported that an audit by the Office of Personnel Management’s inspector general uncovered nearly $1.1 million in questionable expenses by Global Impact, which runs the National Capital Area’s Combined Federal Campaign. Global Impact was ordered to repay $308,820 of the challenged food, entertainment and travel expenses to the account used to distribute money to charities. You can read a statement from the OPM Director here and the full audit report here.
  • In 2012, Global Impact’s website included a response to the U.S. Office of Inspector General's Audit. View a copy of that message here.
