How to get involved
Discover the immediacy, power and personal rewards of philanthropy. Connect with citizens across the world as you help make a difference in the lives of women, children and their communities.
You have a few options:
World Connect Club — A World Connect Club can stand on its own or integrate into a relevant preexisting club. World Connect Clubs can be led by student organization leaders and supported by faculty advisors. A World Connect Club is a powerful way to engage an intimate group of individuals. Connect with students and citizens across the world as you learn how to make a difference in the lives of women, children and their communities. Discover the immediacy, power and personal rewards of philanthropy.
Community Initiative — Community initiatives are led by an individual or group who elect leaders to be the point people to the community. As in a World Connect Club, members learn about, discuss, and vote on projects around which to center their education and fundraising efforts. Members can choose their top projects of interest currently listed on the World Connect site to learn more about, think about the project’s implementation and sustainability, hone leadership skills, and develop a sense of global citizenship and connection with these real communities around the world. You can receive regular reports, photos, and videos from the field to witness the direct impact the you are making. Through fundraisers, you can raise both money and awareness for projects supporting women and children in Africa, Latin America, and Asia.
U.S. Grant Application — A connected world can’t happen if we don’t work domestically, as well. We are looking for innovative and thoughtful projects that inspire young people and communities in the U.S. to act and make global connections. This can be through art, education, or any medium that inspires you! Host a global development seminar with people in the industry; found a slam poetry club exploring cross-cultural linkages; organize a potluck dinner with food from all over the world! Whatever your idea is, we want to hear from you.
