We are always so impressed when we visit EMpower’s grantee partners. They have a great understanding of the needs of the youth and communities they serve. What drew us to EMpower is the ability to find and work with best in class NGOs, and there is a high degree of transparency so we know that our donations are having a significant impact in the areas we care about. On top of that, EMpower works very closely with its grantee partners and helps them to scale up, so that they can become even more impactful over time – meaning our funds are multiplied in terms of impact.
