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.

Some have gone on to win international awards, gain media attention, and scale their projects on a global level.
Our grantees are a testament to the unbreakable human spirit that is still alive and well all over the world.
