$150k+ in Supplemental Contributions to the PPA!
Jun 30, 2016
Several PPA members have made noteworthy contributions in recent months. A grant from U.S. Department of State will support RESOLVE’s secretariat services in all of 2016. In addition, member organizations Google, GE, Sony, Apple, and Blackberry have made supplemental contributions to the PPA’s funding pool – a total of $150,000! A portion of these voluntary contributions has already been committed to support new grants by the PPA to IPIS and the ICGLR (see below announcements on new projects). Current remaining funds will support approximately one medium grant or 4-5 small grants to support in-region projects in the remaining year of the PPA MOU (which expires in August 2017). The PPA Governance Committee requests that all members consider a 2016 supplemental contribution to the PPA to allow additional grant making and activities.
The PPA provides a vetted, safe, and flexible channel for organizations seeking to support responsible trade in the Great Lakes Region. By joining together, funders maximize the impact of their contributions. To discuss making a supplementary contribution to the PPA, please contact RESOLVE (tken...@resolv.org; jpey...@resolv.org).
