Annual Report 2011-2012
Another year has gone by. And once again, we have an opportunity through this Annual Report to examine ourselves as an institution. Looking back on the past year, our activities have helped us deepen and reinforce our mission. It was a time for celebration (our dinner in Liberia with two Nobel prizewinners) and reflection (our first Organizational Assessment). It was a time for correction and preparation. We focused ourselves with more targeted grantmaking (78 grants totaling more than $3 million) and secured further support from institutional donors. We built new partnerships and collaborated with like-minded institutions to strengthen our core program areas. We remained strong in the face of a global financial crisis and we grew our staff and our programs.
