Project start date: Not found
Project duration: Not found

Eligible organization: As below

● They invest in early stage organizations and are often their first institutional investor, as well as their first “outside” board member. They invest in a wide variety of sectors: our current portfolio includes organizations working both domestically and internationally, helping to provide critical access to healthcare, education, food security, social justice, water and sanitation, transparency and accountability, and shelter.
● To affect meaningful change upon the major challenges of our time, they need big solutions to big problems. They support social enterprises — non profit, for profit and hybrid organizations — that can expand enough to directly benefit a large number of beneficiaries and impart enough momentum to influence broader systems that encumber progress. Scaled organizations act as models to other groups in the sector and have the clout to affect policy, public opinion, and economies.

They fund:
● Leaders tackling important social issues that can make a difference in the lives of many.
● Models that have the likelihood to be able to scale.
● Social enterprises in the early stages of their development where DRK involvement (financial, as a board member and through other support) can make a real difference.
● On average, organizations are 1-3 years old and the leader is prepared to execute an ambitious plan.
● Social enterprises that are national or global in reach and/or social issue.

They do not fund:
● Community-based organizations with no interest in scaling.
● Organizations whose sole focus is on the development of research.
● Programs promoting religious doctrine.

Eligible Country: No country bar found (Open to all regions)
