The Task Force receives programmatic funding from government agencies, charitable foundations, corporations, and non-governmental agencies. A list of our FY18 funders is available here. We also receive significant in-kind contributions from the pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Merck & Co., Inc. who 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 (see below).
The Task Force for Global Health topped The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s 2018 list as the non-profit that raised the most in non-cash (or in-kind) gifts in FY2017.
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 2018, we devoted 87 percent of our revenue to our program.
Our fiscal year 2018 budget was close to $2.2 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 Charity Navigator because we do not meet their criterion of spending at least one percent or more of our annual budget (in-kind contributions included) 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.
