The Task Force receives programmatic funding from the U.S. government (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. State Department, and USAID), charitable foundations, corporations, non-governmental agencies, and the World Health Organization. A complete listing of our funders is available in our Progress Report.
We also received significant in-kind contributions from two major pharmaceutical companies – Pfizer and Merck – which together donate billions of dollars annually of antibiotic and anti–parasitic medicines for the control and elimination of neglected tropical diseases. These donations are received by The Task Force’s subsidiary Global Health Solutions, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
We operate with high levels of efficiency and leverage resources for an extraordinary impact. We benchmark our administrative, project management, and financial management practices against the best practices of leading corporations. This helps ensure the efficient use of resources entrusted to us and that we deliver programs that meet the needs of people whom we serve. In fiscal year 2015, we devoted 89 percent of our revenue to program support.
Our fiscal year 2016 budget was $3.2 billion, including significant in-kind contributions of antibiotic and anti-parasitic medicines for the control and elimination of neglected tropical diseases. Forbes ranks us the second largest U.S. charity based on our annual revenue. The Task Force is not eligible to be rated by CharityNavigator because we don’t meet their criterion of spending at least one percent of our annual budget on fundraising.
The Task Force for Global Health, Inc. (The Task Force) is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation, as defined by the United States Internal Revenue Service. The Task Force also has a supporting organization, which receives in-kind contributions of donated pharmaceuticals, and other support.
