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 practice intelligent compassion in action. Hope is critical to our vision, and we aim to foster hope by any means possible. Our focus is to get hope to grow, whether through our own projects, working in partnership, or by supporting the efforts of others. To implement our vision, we follow a simple methodology known as the “Seven Pillars.”

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 have partners in education, policy, law, and media, and at the grass-roots.  We feel a partnership spirit with everyone who visits this site and gets involved. Never underestimate your ripple! With every partnership, the aim is to encourage, empower, and let hope grow. With every project, we aim for tangible results.

Current projects include: fostering student filmmakers, peacemakers, ripplemakers, &  visionaries; and helping kids cope with stress; and helping nonprofits navigate IT Security. While they may seem far-ranging, they all share a common methodology and the same overarching goal.

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