Who We Fund

We fund
the underdogs.

We’re often asked how we find the charities we support. Most people tell us they’ve never heard of them. We think they deserve a ticker-tape parade, but they struggle to compete for funder and donor attention with big-name charities and their fat marketing budgets. Since we believe in giving deserving underdogs a shot, we help put them on firmer footing. If they wow us, we’re all ears to hear their next big idea. And because many are meeting a need no other organization is, we often wind up filling a funding gap. Here's how we find them, fund them, and decide who makes the cut.

They put some ground beneath those hidden gems only they have the eye to see, then know how best to support them.
