Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity. I’m so excited by all we’ve been able to accomplish through this grant, and all that we will continue to accomplish as a result of it.
The grant from the Pollination Project was the most influential contribution to the non-profit work that I have been doing in the Pinellas County. I was able to significantly improve the offerings by organizing a county-wide hackathon event for the middle-school students in early 2017. The inaugural HackPCS 2017 was hosted by [...]
The TPP grant provided the needed seed money which allowed me to build a strong base for the educational components of our project...Because of TPP support, I was able to work with designers to produce visually stimulating materials increasing the impact of our education and advocacy programs. I appreciate the support of [...]
We realized our dream: The beneficiaries learned to produce artistic products...the survivors needed art therapy and they got it. They recovered their human dignity.
I thought the entire process was well-designed and thoughtful. I have nothing but positive feedback! The TPP seed grant provided us with enough funding to purchase equipment necessary to launch our program...Thank you for this early stage seed money!
We want to thank the Pollination Project for their magnanimous support. It is through such generosity that we were able to start the pilot phase of our safety project, 'Empowering Guides and Porters for Better Safety and Leisure' which has started creating a safety environment for visitors, families, friends, guides, porters, and [...]
Thank you so much for trusting us with a small grant that will change the lives of these poor rural women and girls. We are so grateful indeed.
This grant has advertised my capabilities, helped with fundraising, and mobilized stakeholders. It has also helped showcase my commitment to community development.
Yes, because of this grant i was able to get materials i couldn't afford and show people the need in our city to take pollution seriously. Just being able to say that i received the grant has gotten me national attention and i submitted my findings to the American Public Health Association [...]
We would like to thank The Pollination Project for their generous support. Without this grant, we could not have implemented our pilot project successfully. Providing teacher training was the first step in ensuring our program is effective and sustainable, and our teachers have proven their dedication, enthusiasm and capacity for learning from [...]
On behalf of our women, we want to specially thank the TPP for your support as you have given us and edge and a leverage to build on.
I am forever grateful for your belief in my ideas. I know that with my NP and your initial grant my non-profit will be a huge success and I will make a difference in hundreds of individuals in their end of life care. Thank you!
The grant was our first source of outside funding for our project. It reminded us that the work we are doing is important, and that we have support outside of our agency for it.
Arinolah Elizabeth-Nite Omollo, Help Single Mothers Meet Their Financial And Psychological Needs, Rongai, Kenya
TPP has changed my perception towards programming and resource management. I have learnt that impact is on the eyes of the beneficiaries and what they feel about an intervention. That no matter how much funds a project receives, there is always a seed of impact planted if targets are well set. I [...]
Pollination grant has been the light at the end of my tunnel. It has opened doors i never thought would open in my lifetime. After struggling alone for over 10 years, the grant has given me and my group identity.. This grant has been a key to opening all the doors of [...]

I submitted the application for the first part. I am hopeful to have the chance to go into the second part. Life will decide. What is important is to see how TPP managed to stay in the hearts of the Arhuaco tribe, at the heart of the World. Everything they received from [...]
The TPP grant made a difference in our work because we did not feel alone any more. Someone recognized the same need as we did. We felt heard and acknowledged. This gave us the confidence that there are more people out there that see the need for this work, and it gave [...]
Since our goal with this grant is giving our students and artists of the region access to connect with opportunities all around the world by using the website WAJIIRA and social network’s recourses, we would need professional equipment’s to offer an accurate service. Thanks to your grant we already achieve the first [...]
It was more than just the money. This was a vote of confidence. A belief that Litterati was an idea that mattered. And in those early days, when things are murky, and the path forward is murky at best, knowing someone has your back can be the difference between quitting and continuing. [...]
I deeply appreciate TPP and the way in which the organization supports grantees both from a funding and reporting perspective as well as from a more personal perspective. Fostering development and working with communities is not always easier or straightforward...there is no formula that can be specifically followed. As in life, there [...]
