GPE’s financing campaigns are an opportunity to raise the funds needed to implement the partnership’s strategy and to increase global education financing so that SDG 4 can be achieved.
Financing GPE 2025
The 4th financing campaign covers the period 2021-2025 and will finance GPE’s new strategy, GPE 2025. The goal is to raise at least US$5 billion over 5 years to transform education systems in up to 88 countries that are home to 1 billion children and youth.
GPE’s 3rd replenishment raised donor pledges totaling US$2.8 billion. During the Financing Conference in Dakar co-hosted by Macky Sall, President of Senegal, and Emmanuel Macron, President of France, partner countries also pledged to allocate US$110 billion in domestic budgets for education for the 2018-2020 period.
The 2nd replenishment covered the years 2015 to 2017 and introduced a new operational model. The Replenishment Conference was held in Brussels, Belgium, in June 2014. Overall, pledges from partner countries reached US$26 billion and pledges from donors reached US$2.1 billion.
The 1st GPE replenishment covered 2011-2014 and generated pledges from 60 partners. Close to US$2 billion were contributed to the GPE Fund over that period.
