Who we are

Epic is a global foundation which seeks to empower and protect children, youth and our planet. 

We bridge the gap between the social entrepreneurs forging solutions to today’s pressing challenges, and the individuals and businesses who desire to drive positive change. We build a global community of nonprofits and donors alike who come together to build a more just, equitable and sustainable world.

Our model sets us apart. Using a VC-inspired approach and best practice in the field, we build, back and monitor portfolios of diverse, complementary and highly vetted non profit organizations. Not the small ones, not the big ones, but those who want to further their impact and for which our support will be a game-changer. We offer them the kind of transformational funding – unrestricted and multi-year – that enables them to foster lasting change.

Because this model ensures trust, transparency and accountability, we are able to mobilize individuals and businesses who pool their resources to strategically make a difference and maximize their impact. We act as an innovative one stop shop, and tailor giving solutions that are adapted to who they are and what they do. 

We operate on a pro bono basis. This means Epic’s board covers all operational costs, ensuring 100% of donations received go directly to the organizations in our portfolios.

We connect people and mobilize resources in order to foster lasting change.
