We try to multiply our giving, encouraging more people to give, and supporting the development of philanthropic platforms and programs.

Through innovative programs and venture philanthropy, we provide growth opportunities for nonprofit leaders, attract and award funding, and incubate new charitable giving initiatives.


Power Launch convenes nonprofit executives for immersive learning and network development to support high performance and talent retention in the sector. We use prize philanthropy and an accelerator to enable nonprofit board members and executives to learn from each other and experts, test out new ideas, and access resources including financial support.

During the Charity Warriors Challenge and year-long Change Agent fellowship, we engage organizational leaders for learning, planning, and doing. We equip nonprofit leaders, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists with practical tools, valuable learning opportunities, and critical resources to scale and sustain their impact.

Our accelerators and competitions are built upon proven models of success. We've adopted the best of business incubators, ideation competitions, startup accelerators, leadership development programs, and design-thinking expertise to create an investment model for identifying, supporting, and scaling effective organizations toward greater impact and financial sustainability.

Our charitable fund is supported by a community of philanthropists who leverage their collective giving to achieve greater impact. The fund helps compelling ideas, exceptional leaders, and high-potential organizations get the fuel needed to scale and sustain social impact.

We award funds through competitions & grant-making to high-impact nonprofits in our portfolio. Social impact competitions provide a transformative opportunity for nonprofits, while engaging philanthropists in meaningful, high-impact giving.

Giving together leverages the knowledge, resources, and connections of our community, to outside the impact of personal giving. Members pool philanthropic funds to invest in effective programs that improve people's lives, our communities, and beyond.

The lab incubates new programs created from our own experiments, and giving initiatives developed by entrepreneurial philanthropists. We seek to spark creativity and mobilize community leaders to expand and innovate philanthropy.

Power Launch crowdsources new ideas through competitions, hackathon challenges, and through our extensive network.

Our approach is powered by an Executive in Residence (XiR) program. The XiR program convenes smart leaders who are deeply connected to the needs of their communities and at the forefront of innovative social impact work.
