  • Proceeds to Gavi from donor contributions & pledges (2011-2015) as of 31 March 2015

     

     

    Note: Proceeds are the funds made available to Gavi for the period from donor contributions and commitments, either through cash payments made to Gavi, through the frontloading via the capital markets of a donor future commitment to IFFIm, or AMC funds released to Gavi via the World Bank. Proceeds are subject to change from factors including new pledges announcements, Gavi's cash flow needs from IFFIm and the impact of foreign currency changes. Figures do not include IFFIm agreements that have yet to be formally signed.

    All 2000-2014 direct and GAVI Matching Fund contributions are recorded in US dollars at the actual exchange rates for the day of cash received. All 2015 direct and GAVI Matching Fund pledges are expressed in US dollars at 31 March 2015 exchange rates. All 2016-2034 direct and GAVI Matching Fund pledges are expressed in US dollars using the average of the annual FX forecasted rates as published by Bloomberg at the end of each calendar quarter (or as otherwise in line with its bi-annual long-term forecasting process). This methodology is consistent with that shared and agreed with donors in Berlin in January 2015 at Gavi’s pledging meeting.

    Notes:
    Contributions comprise direct contributions already received by GAVI from donors, contributions made to IFFIm and the AMC donor contributions to the World Bank. All 2000-2014 direct, Matching Fund, and AMC contributions are recorded in US dollars at the actual exchange rates for the day of cash received. All 2015 direct, Matching Fund, and AMC pledges are expressed in US dollars at 31 March 2015 exchange rates. All 2016-2034 direct, Matching Fund, and AMC pledges are expressed in US dollars at using the average of the annual FX forecasted rates as published by Bloomberg at the end of each calendar quarter (or as otherwise in line with its bi-annual long-term forecasting process). This methodology is consistent with that shared and agreed with donors in Berlin in January 2015 at Gavi’s pledging meeting.

    All 2000-2014 IFFIm contributions are recorded in US dollars equivalents using the exchange rates at the time of signing the respective donor grant agreements. Unsigned non-US dollar IFFIm pledges are expressed in US dollar equivalents using an average of the available yearly forecast rates from Bloomberg. These contributions have not been reduced by a notional 3% provision to allow for any potential reduction arising from the High Level Financing Condition of the IFFIm Finance Framework Agreement.

  • Funding history

    Comic Relief is UK-based charity that strives to create a just world free from poverty. Its mission is to drive positive change through the power of entertainment. Since being launched on Christmas Day in 1985, live on BBC television, Comic Relief has raised millions of pounds through two big fundraising campaigns: Red Nose Day and Sport Relief. That money is used to tackle the root causes of poverty and social injustice. The idea is simple: Comic Relief makes the public laugh as a way to raise money to help people in desperate need.

    Alternating between Red Nose Day Campaigns and Sport Relief Campaigns annually since 2012, Comic Relief has been successful in raising significant funding and awareness for Gavi’s immunisation programmes.

    Most recently, during Gavi’s Reach Every Child Pledging Conference in Berlin, Comic Relief pledged an additional GBP 3 million through the Gavi Matching Fund.

    All of Comic Relief’s contributions are matched by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, bringing the sum to GBP 27 million (USD 42.2 million).

    • Matching Fund (2012-2015): USD 21.1 million (GBP 13.5 million);
    • Matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation: USD 21.1 million.
