    Description:

    To accelerate social change, Echoing Green invests in and supports outstanding emerging social entrepreneurs to launch new organizations that deliver bold, high-impact solutions. Through a two-year fellowship program, the firm helps its network of visionaries develop new solutions to society's most difficult problems. These social entrepreneurs and their organizations work to solve deeply-rooted social, environmental, economic, and political inequities to ensure equal access and to help all individuals reach their potential. To date, Echoing Green has invested over $30 million in seed funding to over 700 social entrepreneurs and their innovative organizations. Echoing Green is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Each year, Echoing Green awards 12-15 two-year fellowships to social entrepreneurs. Fellows receive up to $90,000 in seed funding and technical support to turn their innovative ideas into sustainable social change organizations. They've funded and supported organizations that have now collectively served more than 12 million students in 3700 schools, 3.7 million patients, and 270,000 community health workers.
