Global Impact Appoints New President & CEO

Scott Jackson has been named as Global Impact’s new President and CEO. Global Impact is a Washington, D.C.-based international nongovernmental organization (NGO). Jackson is highly qualified for the position, and Global Impact expressed in a May press release that their new president & CEO will be capable of using his accomplishments and Global Impact’s mission to achieve success in helping the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Scott Jackson previously worked for PATH, a Seattle-based global health non-profit where he served as the Vice President for External Relations. His experience at PATH provided him with significant global development, marketing and fundraising experience.

Global Impact believes that Jackson’s twenty years of experience in international development will be highly valuable to Global Impact. Mr. Jackson’s new role as President & CEO will entail a variety of responsibilities. These responsibilities will include: leading Global Impact’s advisory services, fundraising campaigns, workplace giving, partnerships, and strategic alliances.

Jackson will be comfortable managing donor and fundraising campaigns. He gained experience in the field at PATH where he worked relentlessly to strengthen relationships with partners and donors while also maximizing the visibility of PATH’s work. His work there helped to increase their donor base and grow their organization. PATH issued a statement in which they said Jackson would be truly missed as both a colleague and a friend. They also stated that he contributed a great deal to PATH’s work and the global health field overall.

Global Impact raises funds to address critical humanitarian needs around the world. They are responsible for impressive fundraising campaigns for thousands of different organizations. They have raised over $1.5 billion for their partner organizations. Global Impact funds more than 70 U.S. based international charities. They provide unique solutions to meet the unique giving needs of both organizations and donors. Global Impact was founded in 1956 and has provided valuable services to help the world’s poor and most vulnerable populations.
