The Ripple Foundation is focused on poverty alleviation.  This generally leads us to improving access to health and education for the disadvantaged in international communities. We aim to distribute at least seventy percent of funds to international programs working in these areas. Smaller donations to other areas are assessed on an individual basis.

what do we fund?

We generally provide unrestricted funding.  This stems from our preference to support organisations and their people rather than specific projects.  We believe the organisations we support are far better positioned than us to decide where the money is most needed.


what size organisation do we support?

From very big to very small.  We don't discriminate. 


How long do you provide support?

Our funding is generally for multi-year periods.  While much can be done in a year we find that much more than that is required to have a true impact.
