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.
Today’s featured grantee
The Invisible Vegan is a 90-minute independent documentary, directed by Kenny and Jasmine Leyva, which explores the problem of unhealthy dietary patterns in the African-American community, foregrounding the health and wellness possibilities enabled by plant-based vegan diets and lifestyle choices. The purpose of this film project is to contribute to vegan advocacy by showing how plant-based dietary practices are ethical, sustainable, and conducive to health and wellness.
