Partnerships are increasing GAVI’s fundraising potential and spreading the word about GAVI’s accomplishments.
In April 2008 GAVI partnered with La Caixa, Spain's leading savings bank and Europe's second largest foundation – in a multi-faceted engagement and giving program. This unique and noteworthy corporate social responsibility initiative has five important components:
An annual, and renewable, grant from the La Caixa Foundation
A campaign to engage La Caixa's 26,000+ member employee group
An engagement strategy for La Caixa's 400,000+ corporate depositors
An outreach campaign to reach over 11 million individual La Caixa account holders
A broader outreach strategy to inform and engage all Spanish citizens
By raising national awareness and encouraging monetary support the La Caixa/GAVI partnership is an extraordinary example of public and private interests joining together on a common goal – to reduce childhood mortality.
