Get Involved: Underwriting

Underwriting is the most significant support that you can give to EMpower. Our Underwriters are committed and strategic supporters who understand the value of longer-term financial funding that enables growth and innovation. Our underwriters make a meaningful and powerful commitment to EMpower’s ongoing work by supporting EMpower’s vision and mission. Underwriting donations are crucial to support EMpower’s continued work with youth in emerging market countries. Thanks to EMpower’s committed Underwriters, who finance our operational and fundraising costs, 100% of all donations go directly to empowering young people.
