FedEx Continues Support of InterAction's NGO Aid Map

WASHINGTON, Feb. 9, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — NGO alliance InterAction is pleased to announce that FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) has awarded additional funding of $400,000 for InterAction's NGO Aid Map through December 2015. The map, an online, interactive tool that details the work of U.S.-based, international NGOs at the project level, has evolved over time with support from FedEx. In 2014, the focus shifted from mapping U.S. NGOs response to one crisis to a global mapping of InterAction members' development programming and emergency response efforts. FedEx began supporting the initiative in January 2011 and now has given over $1.4 million toward the effort.

The evolution of NGO Aid Map, and the unique collaboration between FedEx and InterAction, has established InterAction as a leader in aid transparency and open data, and increased NGOs commitment to improving data collection and data sharing. In this fifth year of support from FedEx, InterAction will work to capture an even larger amount of information on NGO activities by replicating NGO Aid Map with other networks, creating a standardized way of displaying global NGO data.

"FedEx's continued support of our mapping work has been crucial in helping our members realize the value in open data and commit to greater transparency. With this additional funding, NGO Aid Map will continue to expand the site to include more data, better data, and new functionality. We are very pleased that the relationship will continue," said Lindsay Coates, acting president and CEO of InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.-based international NGOs. 

"At FedEx, innovation and technology are part of our DNA, it's what we were founded on. By supporting NGO Aid Map, we're helping to provide information to NGOs and the broader community. This results in better collaboration and the ability to provide emergency response services and programs in the most effective and efficient way possible. FedEx is proud to support the critical work of InterAction and NGO Aid Map," said Jack Muhs, President and CEO of FedEx Trade Networks.

In addition to expanding the NGO Aid Map platform, InterAction and FedEx will support an award to encourage NGOs to increase the quality and quantity of their publicly available data. The $10,000 award will recognize an organization committed to transparency and open data.
