Educate! Selected to join Epic Foundation’s 2015 Global Portfolio
Out of more than 1,400 applicants from around the world, Educate! has been selected by the Epic Foundation as one of the 20 most impactful youth organizations globally.
Epic has an innovative approach to global investment: the foundation promotes top-vetted charities in its portfolio much the same way that a business would pitch to investors before an initial public offering. Epic’s portfolio of charities operate in four areas of children’s welfare: health, economic empowerment, human rights, and education. This fall and winter, Epic will present its portfolio to three groups: entrepreneurs, “voices” (entertainers and athletes), and corporate donors. Calling this promotional tour a “road show”, Epic will stop in Boston, Geneva, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, New York, Paris, and Singapore.
