Malaria Partners International Receives $2 Million Gates Foundation Grant

by | Sep 19, 2021 | Blog

I am delighted to share with our supporters and global health partners that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has approved and finalized a $2M grant to Malaria Partners International. The grant runs from 9/2021 through 12/31/2023 with the first tranche of funding scheduled to arrive before the end of the month.

There is much to celebrate in this grant including that every dollar donated to Malaria Partners International will be matched dollar for dollar by the Gates Foundation up to $200,000. This reflects the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s belief in MPI’s mission of mobilizing Rotarians to lead the fight to end malaria.

The grant funding will be used to support three key elements of MPI’s work:

  • Expanding support for our current African affiliates and helping MPI build new country affiliates
  • Providing matching funds for a $1.2 million Global Grant to train, equip and support 1,700 Village Health Workers in Uganda
  • Helping MPI continue to build capacity for future mission-related work

As you begin thinking about your year-end giving plans, I hope you will consider supporting MPI’s work, knowing that your gift will be matched dollar for dollar by the Gates Foundation. Thank you!
