Uplifting selfless grassroots volunteerism

for a kinder, more compassionate world.






Seeding a community
of #changemakers

We use the money we raise to invest in grassroots projects by people who seek to create a more compassionate world. Every day of the year, our network selects a new project that will receive $1,000 in seed funding. As that project blossoms, leaders can access capacity-building support, encouragement, and connectivity with others. Through these efforts, we seed a vibrant community of global changemakers who seek to spread compassion in the world for the benefit of all.

At TPP, we believe in people, so we invest in people.

Torrence Ledwich: Ledwich Family Farm Community Permaculture Garden

Location: USA

“You can rebuild what was lost. You can create something out of nothing even when other people don’t believe it.”

Torrence Ledwich, one of the founders of the animal sanctuary Ledwich Family Farm, is living proof of the power of dreams. The Ledwich Family Farm is a vegan sanctuary whose mission is to rescue and provide lifelong care to animals in need and advocate for those who cannot be rescued. The sanctuary is planning to start a permaculture community garden which will include a walking path and one acre of edible plants grown sustainably using a vegan process.
