We Give Seed Grants to Social Change Leaders
We believe in the power of people. Every day, all over the world, ordinary citizens are doing extraordinary things to make their communities and their world a better place.
On January 1, 2013, we began making small grants, every single day of the year, to community change makers working on important social change issues, spreading compassion and kindness wherever they are.

Our grantees are a testament to the unbreakable human spirit that is still alive and well all over the world.
