Every year, Google.org grants US$ 200 million to non-profits and social enterprises across the globe. Google.org’s goal is to use their philanthropic capital to help stimulate innovative approaches to solving problems and provide comprehensive support for marginalised communities.
At the “One World Protected” Event on 15 April 2021, Google.org committed US$ 2.5 million to the Gavi COVAX AMC and in parallel launched a global campaign incentivising employees to contribute directly to Gavi. More than US$ 5 million in contributions from Googlers was raised, adding to a total of US$ 7.5 million contribution to COVAX from Google and the Googlers.
In addition, Google.org has been providing vaccine-related insights to help Gavi better educate communities about the COVID-19 vaccine. Gavi has used that information to create educational content that reaches more than half a million people each day. In 2021, Google.org also committed US$ 15 million in Ad Grants to help Gavi build on these efforts and amplify Gavi’s fundraising campaign. Further contributions of another US$ 6.8 million for 2021 and an additional US$ 30 million for 2022 were also provided by Google.
In 2023, Google renewed funding and support to Gavi, including US$ 25 million in donated search advertisements and expertise to help boost vaccine confidence worldwide, and US$ 250,000 towards INFUSE 2.0 to support the scale-up of innovations in immunisation.
Proceeds are funds made available to Gavi from donor contributions and commitments, either through cash payments made to Gavi, through frontloading via the capital markets of a future donor commitment to IFFIm, or through AMC funds released to Gavi via the World Bank. IFFIm proceeds are allocated over five-year periods coinciding with Gavi’s strategic periods. Proceeds for the current and future strategic periods are indicative until the end of each period and could be revised following changes in market conditions (interest rates or foreign exchange rates), the signing of new pledge(s) and/or changes in IFFIm’s disbursement profile.

Due to IFFIm’s nature as a frontloading vehicle, yearly contributions paid into IFFIm can differ significantly from yearly proceeds transferred to Gavi.
While IFFIm grants are irrevocable and legally binding, they are subject to a Grant Payment Condition that can potentially reduce the amount due by the donor in the event that a Gavi-supported programme country is in protracted arrears with the International Monetary Fund. Since 29 June 2021, there is no longer any reduction applied, as all countries from the reference portfolio have cleared their arrears with the IMF.
