The Initiative for Global Development (IGD) "is a national network of business leaders that champions effective solutions to global poverty.

"Founded in Seattle in 2003 by Bill Gates Sr., Daniel J. Evans, Bill Ruckelshaus, Bill Clapp and John Shalikashvili, the organization has grown to a national network of 300 members in 11 cities. Members are regional and national opinion leaders, the majority of whom are current CEOs or senior managers of recognized corporations.

"IGD believes that poverty is at the root of many of the world’s gravest challenges and that working to eliminate it is one of the most critical steps the United States can take in creating a more stable, more humane and more prosperous world for all. IGD recognizes that significant reductions in global poverty and sustained economic growth will only be realized with strong participation by the private and public sectors." [1]

"The Center for Global Development contributed substantially to the Initiative for Global Development's report "A New Global Development Strategy to End Extreme Poverty."" [2]
