Welcome, and thank you for all that you do to build a more hopeful tomorrow.

We invite you to explore this site. Get to know us, and get a solid grip on how to increase your own impact.

Our Philosophy and Vision… We are Elfenworks, In Harmony With Hope. Hope is critical to our vision, and we aim to foster hope by any means possible. While our efforts may at first seem far-ranging, they all share a common methodology and the same overarching goal: help hope grow!

With every partnership and project, we aim for tangible results, following a simple yet powerful methodology known as the “Seven Pillars for Social Entrepreneurs.” We’re doers, not financiers. Rather than a “fund this cause” model, we follow a “roll up our sleeves, join together, and innovate a solution” model. We also teach our methodology, and foster its adoption.

We have partners in education, policy, law, media, and at the grass-roots. Current projects include: fostering student social justice filmmakers, peacemakers, ripplemakers, & visionaries; helping people cope with stress; and helping nonprofits navigate IT Security. We also feel a partnership spirit with everyone who visits this site and gets involved.

We say “help one, help many, cause a ripple.” May you find this website inspiring and helpful. Never underestimate your power to make a positive ripple.
