The Pollination Project seeks to unleash GOODNESS and expand COMPASSION all over the world. They make daily seed grants to inspiring social change-makers who are committed to a world that works for all.
Their daily grant making began on January 1, 2013 and since then, they have funded a different project every single day. They also make larger impact grants of up to $5000 to projects that have demonstrated impact and success.
Through a global network of grantees and community partners, they identify extraordinary grassroots leaders who would not likely qualify for funding from other foundations or institutions. Once they have the backing of The Pollination Project, grantees often leverage their grant into more funding, building their team, media attention and more.
The organizations' grantees have gone on to win prestigious international awards, secure large government and foundation grants, and secure national and international media attention.
As part of their funding platform, they welcome like-minded and values-aligned institutional and individual donors to join them either as daily givers themselves, or as sponsors for unique seed grant programs of mutual interest (such as youth environmental grants, education grants or targeted regional grants).
The Pollination Project is a learning laboratory for emergent Indy Philanthropy trends and practices. The organization is proudly identify as a vegan organization and as a justice funder.
