A Better World Fund is a nonpolitical, nonsectarian, publicly supported endowment that gives grants annually to charities working throughout the world in the areas of Peace, Hunger, Health, Human Rights, Ecology, Education, and Economic Development.
Our first grants were awarded in 1984 and were a nominal $25 per grantee. The endowment fund - which started with our founder's small initial contribution - has continued to this day as an all-volunteer charity with no paid employees, minimal expenses and an all-volunteer and unpaid board.
As a result, we have grown leaps and bounds having provided more than $500,000 in grants to a 100+ grantees since inception.
We continue to aspire to grow the fund and enable even more organizations to achieve their charitable goals.
