Seeding a community
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.
