The Together for Girls’ public-private partnership model is designed to promote coordination and leverage resources from partner organizations, including government, United Nations, and private sector entities, as well as other generous donors. Contributions to the partnership are channeled through several mechanisms, depending on which activities the funds are intended to support.
At least $20 million worth of resources are contributed to the partnership work each year, and more than $100 million of direct and in-kind resources have been leveraged to achieve Together for Girls’ partnership goals since its inception in 2009.
The majority of the funds to support the overall partnership work are transferred internally within partner organizations – and are accounted for through their audited financial statements – or partnership work is undertaken directly by partners. In addition, the CDC Foundation, the United Nations Foundation and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF have received and administered funds that support partnership activities.
