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 (Campus Moviefest) , and peacemakers (For Our Time), ripplemakers (Ripple Page), & visionaries (IHH Award); helping people cope with stress (Breathing Butterfly); and helping nonprofits navigate
IT Security (ECNISC). 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.
