Donate to The Pollination Project

Your gifts provide vital seed funding for social change across the globe.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Every day, grassroots leaders across the globe bring us their dreams of a better world. Your gifts provide seed funding, ongoing capacity-building support, belief, and connection for these visionaries. Moreover, you are expanding a people-first, bottom-up approach to social change that is rooted in authenticity and inclusion.

We will put 100% of your gift to immediate use. Private benefactors pay our operating costs, so all of your donation can go directly to the field. If you would like to talk with us about becoming a donor, or if you have questions about your past gifts, call Carolyn Ashworth at 828.407.0404, or email: [email protected]
