The Wild Fund, Inc. AKA The Wild Gift

Wild Gift selects extraordinary Leaders, takes them on a deep wilderness trip and gives them start-up capital and expert mentorship to accelerate their social enterprise. Tax ID 82-0537401


At Wild Gift, it’s simple. We invest in extraordinary young people who are in the change-making business. They see the challenges of today as opportunities and judge business success not solely by profits, but by the difference they are making.


Using wilderness as a springboard, our unique 17-month Fellowship Program has proven itself a critical accelerator igniting these visions into realities.


Over the past decade we have helped launch the enterprises of 43 young social entrepreneurs working globally. Our newest class also has big dreams to promote:


• women-run farm co-ops in West Africa

• affordable solar thermal energy here in the US

• social and environmental initiatives using interactive maps, and

• sustainable agriculture and Fair Trade in India.

Our fellows thrive because of your support. 


Our goal of raising $40,000 by December 31, 2013 will increase the number of Fellowships awarded each year, and with a generous $10,000 matching grant we are on our way to meeting that goal! 


Help us create solutions for today's global challenges by investing in Wild Gift. Your (Wild) Gift will make a world of difference!
