Giving Program

Making an Impact through our Global Grassroots Giving

World Centric gives a minimum of 25% of our profits to fund grassroots community organizations working at the intersection of extreme poverty and climate change. People experiencing extreme poverty often live in the places most impacted by climate change and are more vulnerable to natural disasters. Funding work that integrates climate solutions with socioeconomic development is a powerful way to impact both people and the planet.

Overview


World Centric funds programs around the world helping provide basic needs and economic opportunities for communities facing extreme poverty, while also creating environmental benefit.

Since 2009, we have been able to donate over $17M to fund hundreds of programs worldwide. Your purchases make this possible.
