We leverage resources for an extraordinary impact.
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), U.K. Department for International Development, World Health Organization, charitable foundations, corporations, and non-governmental agencies. A complete listing of our funders are available in our Progress Reports.
We also receive significant in-kind contributions from the pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Merck that together donate antibiotic and anti-parasitic medicines valued at billions of dollars annually for the 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 2017, we devoted 88 percent of our revenue to our program.
Our fiscal year 2017 budget was $2.7 billion, which included significant in-kind contributions of medicines. These contributions help rank The Task Force among the largest U.S. nonprofits, according to Forbes. The Task Force is not eligible to be rated by CharityNavigator because we do not 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.
