Giving people a hand up, not a handout, is the way forward.
- Hugh Jackman
We Support Kiva!
Talk alone is cheap, we put our money where our mouth is when we say we're supporting human -focused philanthropy with a hand up, not a hand out. As business owners and entrepreneurs we envision a world where all people hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and others. By rethinking how we give we can help a borrower start or grow a business, go to school, access clean energy or realize their potential. For some, it’s a matter of survival, for others it’s the fuel for a life-long ambition.
Why We Give
By giving a loan rather than a donation we can powerfully and sustainably create economic and social good. Lending on Kiva creates a partnership of mutual dignity and makes it easy to touch more lives with the same dollar. Fund a loan, get repaid, fund another. When a Kiva loan enables someone to grow a business and create opportunity for themselves, it creates opportunities for others as well. That ripple effect can shape the future for a family or an entire community.
