The Greater Contribution works in conjunction with the partner organizations listed below. These valuable partnerships are essential to our mission, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to work together.
Volunteer Action Network (Vac-Net)
Our very valued partnership with The Volunteer Action Network (VacNet) has allowed us to extend the reach of our micro loans into Northern Uganda. VacNet is a Ugandan non-profit providing critical knowledge of local culture and customs, enabling us to provide economic interventions that reduce vulnerability to poverty, disease, hunger and illiteracy, and which contribute to creation of women’s empowerment. In addition, we are grateful to VacNet for the sharing of office space and staff and for their ongoing advice and coordination of our programs.
International Monetary Fund
In April 2020 the International Monetary Fund provided a $10,000 grant to The Greater Contribution for our Micro Loans for Macro Change program. We are grateful for these funds to further sustain loans for our current borrowers and provide loans to new borrowers. Additionally, the grant allows recovery of women’s businesses post-COVID-19.
The International Monetary Fund promotes international financial stability and monetary cooperation. It also facilitates international trade, promotes employment and sustainable economic growth, and helps to reduce global poverty.
