2018 Year in Review
5 of Unbound’s proudest moments in 2018
As 2018 comes to an end, Unbound shares five of its proudest moments from the year.
Without any government funding or major foundation grants, Unbound reached $2 billion in total revenue since its founding in 1981. Recently, more than 92 percent of Unbound’s expenditures have been used toward program support.
Unbound collaborated with Pope Francis on “Sharing the Wisdom of Time,” a book featuring the stories of 23 sponsored elders and one former sponsored child. Representatives from the publisher tasked with creating the book knew that Unbound was uniquely qualified to help with the project as the only major sponsorship organization to work with the elderly.
Unbound completed a study on its elder program that found sponsored elders to be less lonely, less hungry and have more access to health care than their peers who were not in the program. Currently, more than 31,000 elders across Latin America, Asia and Africa are sponsored through Unbound.
