Global Fund for Children
The 2011/2012 appeal raised a record-breaking £3.34 million for international development charity Sightsavers, making it the most successful appeal since the initiative began in 2005. The funds raised will support Sightsavers in delivering its vision of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes and where visually impaired people participate equally in society. Direct reader donations raised £2.5m with match funding. A photography auction at London’s Getty Images Gallery and an online auction of dinners with FT writers raised £165,408. In addition, the charitable global workforce of Standard Chartered donated their last hour’s pay for 2011, bringing in a further £406,599 towards Sightsavers work.
The 2010/11 appeal in support of Action Against Hunger raised $1.6 million. The charity works to save the lives of millions of malnourished children in over 40 of the world’s poorest countries. Read the FT’s coverage of the charity’s work.
For our 2009/10 appeal, we raised £2,689,833 ($4.3 million) for Room to Read, which supports child literacy in the developing world.
Our 2008/9 appeal was based for the first time on a vote by FT employees. We raised £167,000 for WaterAid, which focuses on water, sanitation and hygiene education.
The 2005/6 and 2007/8 appeals were both for Camfed International, raising £529,404 in the first year and £1,638,963 in the second. Camfed International supports the education of poor girls in Africa.
