Foundation for the Global Compact

In June 2013 I was appointed Special Advisor to the Foundation for the Global Compact, which is a non-profit entity. The Foundation for the Global Compact has been established to support the work of the United Nations Global Compact Office and other Global Compact related activities. It has been given permission to raise funds on behalf of the Global Compact Office. Contributions are voluntary but will help the Global Compact Office to raise awareness of the Global Compact, its principles and how to implement them. Resources provided by the Foundation will be used to defray the costs of Global Compact activities such as events, publication, translation and tools, and thereby help to ensure the sustainability and greatest reach of the initiative, as well as help foster the scaling-up of its impact. More information about the Foundation, including current funding priorities and how to give, is available at www.globalcompactfoundation.org.
