Celebrate 10 Years of Impact 

We are honored to celebrate our 10th anniversary this year. We hope you will join us at our Gala where we will share stories of impact, highlight donors and campaigners who fuel this movement, and invite you to be part of our vision for the future. We have exciting hopes and goals in our 10th year, and your passion for this movement helps strengthen our work.

General registration will open June 10th. If you are hosting a table or joining a table host for the Gala, pre-registration will open April 10th. If you’re interested in hosting a table this year, email us

 

Why give to the Gala? 

We are a 100% model organization. Throughout the year, we give 100% of donations (minus processing fees) directly to projects empowering people in their contexts to fight global poverty. We raise our operating costs separately to make this possible. Our Gala is our one event every year where we invite supporters of this grassroots movement to give to our operations and celebrate the impact of this work. Your generosity fuels our passionate team of dreamers working towards a more just and beautiful world.
