AmerisourceBergen Foundation | June 20, 2022

The AmerisourceBergen Foundation, an independent not-for-profit charitable giving organization focused on supporting health-related causes that enrich the global community, has committed $150,000 to the United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign to support vaccine equity, protecting the world’s most vulnerable children from devastating diseases. The funding will be used toward vaccine interventions in marginalized populations, such as refugee communities, and will specifically support vaccine delivery, transportation logistics and community engagement. The grant comes on the heels of World Refugee Day, an international day designated by the United Nations to honor refugees around the globe. In particular, the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of vaccine-preventable diseases have exacerbated inequities and risks facing migrants and refugees. The Foundation’s partnership with Shot@Life will ensure the global refugee population is not overlooked in global health equity efforts. We’re committed to supporting efforts that expand vaccine access and advance health equity for every community, especially those most vulnerable. We recognize how instrumental the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign is for under-resourced communities, especially as vaccine inequities continue to persist across the globe. The AmerisourceBergen Foundation proudly supports Shot@Life in its goal of increasing access to life-saving vaccines to children around the world, as well as engaging with communities to build trust and confidence, truly meeting individuals where they are.” Gina Clark, President of the AmerisourceBergen Foundation Shot@Life aims to increase access to lifesaving vaccines across the globe through direct support to organizations on the frontlines, as well as equipping grassroots advocates in the U.S. to build vaccine confidence and raise awareness about the importance of investing in global immunization programs. “As Shot@Life looks back at more than 10 years since our founding, we are humbled by the role we have played helping to improve access to global immunization. And at no greater time has our work been more critical than over the past two years of this global pandemic,” said Martha Rebour, Executive Director of Shot@Life. “We’re grateful for the AmerisourceBergen Foundation’s support, and together, we’ll ensure refugee communities across the globe have equitable access to vaccines.” For the past 10 years, Shot@Life has rallied support from the public, members of Congress, businesses, and civil society partners to support and invest in global childhood immunization initiatives. Shot@Life has more than 350,000 supporters and 3,000 grassroots advocates located across the United States, working to ensure every child has access to lifesaving vaccines. Since the onset of the pandemic in March 2020, the Foundation has committed more than $2 million to regional, national, and global nonprofit organizations that have launched campaigns or initiatives to support communities or individuals impacted by COVID-19. And, it has partnered with the United Nations Foundation previously on a number of initiatives, including: the Business Council for the United Nations, which nurtures cross-sector collaboration to advance action around global health and other critical issues; Equal Everywhere, a global gender equity initiative; and Protect Vaccine Progress, which seeks to educate the public on the impact that routine childhood immunizations have had on improving child health globally. For the past two years, Alliance Healthcare Norge Apotekdrift AS also partnered with Shot@Life through the “Get a Shot. Give a Shot.” program, which helped provide a polio or measles vaccine.

X4Impact | May 13, 2022

X4Impact, the leading Insights-as-a-Service company in the Nonprofit and Tech for Good sector honored by Fast Company as a World Changing Idea, is providing a new perspective for Next Level Social Impact on a mission to address persistent inequities in Greater Boston through impact-driven philanthropy. Nine of every ten philanthropic dollars in Massachusetts goes to the largest one percent of nonprofits. This leaves many Commonwealth nonprofits doing exceptional work without access to needed resources. Next Level plays a vital role in addressing this gap by providing highly customized, easily accessible strategic guidance and financial support to a carefully selected portfolio of high-impact nonprofits. Next Level Social Impact used a regional landscape analysis from X4Impact to understand the growth trajectory and sizing of 82,000 nonprofit organizations in Massachusetts. X4Impact detailed segmentation by the size of the nonprofit, tenure, geography, UN SDG, and focus area helped narrow down the target list to 2,200 organizations with a total of $2B in annual revenue, staffed by 15,900 employees and over 346,000 volunteers. To further inform their strategy, an X4Impact Service Desert Map showcased the zip codes in Greater Boston with a scarcity of Human Services nonprofits and a large number of households in need of social assistance, so-called "Service Deserts." There are over 30,000 grantmaking organiztions in the US working hard to make decisions about place-based philanthropy with limited resources. We are proud to partner with Next Level Social Impact to answer important questions about nonprofits in the Greater Boston area as a blueprint for other communities to follow." Luis Salazar, co-founder X4Impact Next Level Social Impact provides flexible, multi-year funding for Massachusetts nonprofit organizations, strategic guidance, customized resources, and social capital. Thanks to the landscape report from X4Impact, they saved months of data gathering work, combing through online forms and fragmented data sources to understand the landscape of opportunity. The organization's leadership team was able to validate their hypotheses related to nonprofit size and tenure as key characteristics to inform their giving strategy. "We have spent a lot of time trying to find the right data to best inform our work supporting the local nonprofit sector," said Ranjini Govender, Chief Partnerships Officer, Next Level Social Impact. "We are fortunate to have found X4Impact! Their Landscape Analysis provided actionable data insights in a streamlined, easily digestible format." The Next Level Social Impact team will use the X4Impact insights to partner with local funders in addressing the identified areas of need. A funder collaborative convening is in the works to bring shared understanding around the power of X4Impact insights to inform local impact-driven philanthropic strategies.
