Impact Portfolio

Since September 2015, we’ve given $48,000 in grants
to the amazing projects, startups, and businesses you’ll
learn about below. Click on each one to learn more!

Relevant work

The projects selected for funding present creative solutions to relevant problems in their communities and the world.

Lasting relationships

We value taking the time to meet and keep up with each one of our brilliant, hard-working micro-grant recipients.

More than money

We’re an organization that gives grants, but our goal is also to move ideas to get the conversation going about topics that matter.

Current and past projects

We continue to support and stay in touch with the impact entrepreneurs to whom we’ve granted during past funding cycles. Although some of our criteria for microgrant applications has been adjusted and reworked over the years, all of these projects have made positive social and/or environmental impact in their communities and continue to inspire in a huge way.
