A Bold Idea: 100% To Cause
When we started Groundwork Opportunities (GO), we made a bold and ambitious promise: 100% of public donations would go directly to fund our projects in the field. We decided that we would find another way to cover our operating expenses, even going so far as to reimburse credit card fees from online donations.
As our organization grew and thrived, so did the success of our promise. We have found that donors have more trust, Champions raise more funds, and entrepreneurs receive the crucial funding they need to help their communities grow. To date, our Champions and the donors they represent have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The 100% Model works.
It’s time to start believing in charity again.

INVESTMENT IN OPERATIONS
In 2008, we started with one big idea, $2,000, and a hard-earned lesson about how to do more with less. Those early days of hyper-frugality taught us how to scale our programs efficiently and effectively. By 2016, every dollar invested in the GO Champions platform will create $6 in funding for projects on the ground. More detailed budget analysis is available upon request.
