In 2015, the UK-based charity Comic Relief – which strives to create a just world free from poverty – launched the Red Nose Day Fund. The Red Nose Day Fund is a US-based charity program that raises awareness and money to help alleviate child poverty in the US and around the world. In 2015, Red Nose Day-USA provided USD 1.2 million to Gavi through a direct contribution. In 2016, the Red Nose Day Fund provided USD 2.5 million to Gavi through a direct contribution; this was matched by the Gavi Matching Fund. In 2017, the Red Nose Day Fund provided USD 2.5 million to Gavi through a direct contribution; this was matched by the Gavi Matching Fund. In 2018, Red Nose Day Fund provided USD 1 million to Gavi through a direct contribution.

Contributions and pledges in total:

  • Direct funding (2011–2018): USD 2.2 million
  • Matching fund (2016–2017): USD 5 million (doubled by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation)

                PROCEEDS TO GAVI FROM DONOR CONTRIBUTIONS & PLEDGES (2016-2020) AS OF 31 December 2019

                Note: 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.

                Notes:
                Direct Contributions (including Matching Fund)
                Received contributions: non-US$ contributions for 2000-2019 are expressed in US$ equivalents using the exchange rates on the dates of receipt. For 2014-2019, where contributions were hedged to mitigate currency risk exposure, these have been expressed using the rates applicable to the hedge agreement.

                Future contributions: non-US$ Direct Contribution and Matching Fund pledges for years 2020 and beyond are expressed in US$ equivalents using the applicable 'forecast rates' from Bloomberg as at 31 December 2019 or using the rates applicable to any hedge agreement in place.

                IFFIm contributions
                Received contributions: non-US$ contributions for 2000-2019 are expressed in US$ equivalents as confirmed by the IBRD (World Bank)

                Future contributions: non-US$ contributions for years 2020 and beyond are expressed in US$ equivalents as follows:

                Where the contribution agreement has been signed: contributions are expressed in US$ equivalents using the exchange rates at the time of signing the respective donor grant agreements
                Where the contribution agreement has not yet been signed: contributions are expressed in US$ equivalents using the applicable 'forecast rates' from Bloomberg as at 31 December 2019

                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 in the event that a programme country is in protracted arrears with the International Monetary Fund. As of 31 December 2019, IFFIm donor grant payments are reduced by 1.5%, however such reductions are not reflected in future contributions figures.
