World Bank’s Community Connections Campaign
Partners for Development (PfD) is proud to announce that it is now an approved charity participating in the World Bank’s Community Connections Campaign (CCC). Through the Community Connections Campaign program World Bank employees and retirees can contribute to non-profit organizations.
PfD’s application to the CCC was led by Ms. Dale Hill and Mr. Stephen O’Brien, both retirees of the World Bank and current or past board members of PfD. In her career at the Bank, Ms. Hill held many positions, including working with the Trust Fund Operations Department and the Independent Evaluation Group while Mr. O’Brien served as Chief Economist for Sub-Saharan Africa.
“We are very pleased at the support and generosity shown by World Bank staff during our very first year’s participation in the campaign! We believe what sets PfD apart is its approach of working locally through community organizations, which helps achieve results that last. PfD is also known for cost-effectiveness. We know that World Bank staff are discerning and have many options for giving; so put us to the test! We invite all to read the stories of impact on our website and direct questions to our staff in our US, Benin, Nigeria, or Cambodia offices.” – Ms. Dale Hill
PfD sincerely thanks those who donated to PfD through the CCC in 2016 and looks forward to being a part of the 2017 CCC.
