Since our founding in 1987, Echoing Green has provided more than 500 emerging social entrepreneurs working in more than forty countries with $31 million in start-up funding, customized support services, and access to our global network of champions. By year two, the majority of our Fellows raise three times their Echoing Green support. By year five, after the completion of their Fellowship, Echoing Green-funded organizations raise, on average, thirty-seven times their Echoing Green seed investment. What’s more, approximately two out of three Echoing Green-funded organizations reach sustainability.
We've created key social innovation pipelines for national service (Teach for America, City Year, Public Allies, Citizen Schools, and Blue Engine); worker’s rights (The Workplace Project, Freelancers Union, the Workers’ Rights Law Center of New York, the Northwest Workers’ Justice Project, and Centro de los Derechos del Migrante); food sovereignty (The Food Project, Added Value, The Real Food Challenge, Gardens for Health International, and One Acre Fund); and college access (College Summit, the SEED Foundation, Native American Community Academy, and Langston Hughes Academy) to name a few.
What does this all mean? Our Fellowship equips emerging visionaries with the skills, resources, and guidance to solve the world's toughest social problems.
Echoing Green’s Work on Purpose program challenges Millennials—the largest generation in history—to build careers that are right for them and good for the world. Using tools like the Work on Purpose book, discussion and activity guides, Echoing Green-led workshops, and a newly-launched website featuring a suite of resources and interactive activities, we’ve helped thousands of young people take steps to shape their paths and leave a social footprint on the world.
And this is just the beginning!
