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. 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.

Every day of the year, we give a grant to changemakers across the globe.

A grant from The Pollination Project will assist in purchasing equipment to establish the solar charging [...]
