Helping Young People Change The Planet

Earth boy - Africa

Unleash Your True Power and Greatness… The Global Ripple Fund finds, coaches, and funds young leaders making a difference in the world around them.

Who We Work With… Our young leaders are inspired social entrepreneurs, environmental entrepreneurs, and grassroots for-proft entrepreneurs.

How it Works… It is really pretty simple. 1. You have come to us with an idea that improves lives and/or the planet (locally or globally). 2. We give you world-class skills, tools, connections, and help you execute your idea. 3. You pass it on – training and helping other game changers to do the same.
