Annual Report 2014
Over the past year, we have witnessed heartbreaking tragedies and the effects of power imbalances around the world and here in the United States. Whether caused by nature, by violence, or by greed, all require action. Oxfam America is taking action and—through the efforts of many—we are making a difference.
In fiscal year 2014, we began aggressively implementing the goals of our new strategic plan and strengthened our assessment, monitoring, and evaluation systems to ensure greater accountability to our supporters and those we serve. It was a successful year financially for the organization. Oxfam America continued to use our resources effectively to tackle injustice and promote long-term solutions to poverty even in some of the most difficult environments.
Oxfam America enters 2015 in a strong financial position with solid reserves, a sound strategic plan, and the investments necessary to grow our resources. We will continue to look at new and innovative approaches to our work and to engage with partner organizations, civil society, governments, and the private sector. It is an exciting journey. And throughout it, we are fortunate to have the support of our generous donors who make our progress possible.
