Radical Optimism is just the beginning, image of butterfly flying

We are helping to build a more hopeful tomorrow.

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 project, we consult with NGO leadership to aim for tangible results following a proprietary methodology known as, "The Seven Pillars for Social Entrepreneurship." Following Seven Pillars, we roll up our sleeves, join forces, and help create innovative solutions to build hope - In Harmony with Hope℠. For select NGO's, we will consider providing limited strategic financial and fundraising support for their philanthropic mission.
