Echoing Green

Supporting bold ideas and extraordinary leaders

For more than 30 years, Echoing Green has been on the front lines of solving the world’s biggest problems, raising up the transformational leaders willing to speak truth to power and challenge the status quo.

We find emerging leaders with the best ideas for social innovation as early as possible, and set them on a path to lifelong impact. We are the best at what we do, and have the trust, experience, and results to prove it.

Our community of almost 1,000 social innovators includes past Fellows like first lady Michelle Obama, the founders of organizations like Teach for America and One Acre Fund, and major public figures like Van Jones. Built and refined over 30 years, our process discovers tomorrow’s leaders, today.

We find, fund, connect, and support a new generation of social impact leaders. The work we do has the power to change communities for the better around the world.

Echoing Green has been ahead of the curve for more than 30 years, supporting visionaries around the world who are transforming economies, and pursuing racial and gender equity, environmental sustainability, and more. Echoing Green’s unparalleled community of talent consists of nearly 800 innovators who have launched Teach For America, City Year, One Acre Fund, SKS Microfinance, Public Allies, and more.

The organization provides seed-funding and leadership development to a new class of Fellows every year and welcomes them into its lifelong community of leaders.

Echoing Green accelerates talent that will change the world for the better.
