“Clear, thoughtful, engaging. Excellent advice for nonprofit entrepreneurs.”

Each year, Charity Entrepreneurship dedicates hundreds of research hours to identifying the most effective charity ideas. Then we recruit aspiring entrepreneurs and, through our two-month Incubation Program, provide them with the training and funding to turn these ideas into high-impact organizations.
Only a small number of nonprofits are founded based on rigorous evidence and research.
As a result, many problems go unidentified and unaddressed.
Many talented individuals lack high-impact career opportunities.
HOW WE WORK
2. RECRUIT & TRAIN
We recruit potential entrepreneurs and provide intensive training, helping them find a co-founder and an idea that best fits their talents.
1. FIND THE SOLUTION
Our systematic research process identifies neglected problems worldwide, pinpointing charity ideas with the highest potential impact per dollar.
3. FUND FOR LAUNCH!
Our Board and network of experts evaluate the teams and their project proposals to award seed funding, with grants ranging from $50,000 to $175,000.
4. CONTINUE TO SUPPORT
We provide ongoing operational support, training, mentoring, and a worldwide network of advisors, peers, and partner organizations.

We estimate that starting a high-impact charity has the same impact as donating $200,000 to the most effective NGOs every year. That means improving hundreds of human or thousands of animal lives.
