Investing in Global Grassroots
Each year Global Grassroots selects a new set of emerging change agents, who apply as venture teams, to attend our 18 month Conscious Change Academy. Teams enrolled in the Academy work to design new solutions to combat the most intractable problems facing women and girls within their communities. The solutions devised by our Academy teams, meeting our criteria, are awarded seed funding grants and 12 months of high-engagement support. This ensures that each venture will maximize their social impact and enables the idea to become rooted in the community as sustainable civil society organization.

Following is a breakdown of investment opportunities that will sustain our Conscious Change Academy each year:

  • $750 provides tuition for one woman to attend the academic portion of our Academy
  • $3,000 provides tuition for an entire social venture team (3-5 team members)
  • $4,000 - $6,000 provides seed funding for one new social venture (grants determined by project start-up costs)
  • $3,000 provides 12 months of high-engagement support for one new social venture
  • $10,000 - $15,000 provides a named sponsorship of one social venture team:
    • Tuition for 5 members of the venture's leadership team to enroll in the Academy
    • Seed funding grant for the venture's start-up
    • 12 months of high engagement support
    • Participation on review board for the venture's post-launch development support
  • $20,000 provides a named sponsorship of one social venture team and a one week site visit to Rwanda during our annual summer Fellowship Gathering.
