Fund & Partners
Global Works Community Fund
Global Works Community Fund was founded in 2011 to provide opportunities for the empowerment of youth to spark social change through service learning, travel, and onoing community development projects. It is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) (tax-status pending). Global Works Community Fund offers funding to high school students to attend international, service-learning programs. Our objective is to give opportunities for students who do not have the financial means from their family to attend summer or school group trips. The anticipated impact is to provide full or partial fellowships for 40-50 high school students annually.
In addition, GWCF supports international community development. Our objective is to support existing projects with our partner communities and organziations through targed funding and targeted action.

FUNDRAISING ON PROJECT TRAVEL
Our Fellowship programs are designed to be a hand up, rather than a hand out, not only to assist with tuition, but also to educate our students to become more active participants in their experience. Therefore, we encourge all students to contribute to their program. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for various fundraiing opportunities. In addition, you can choose to raise money through campaigns through Global Works' partner, Project Travel. Create a profile on the Project Travel website, tell the world where you are going and why, and your are off and running on your own personalized fundraising campaign.
Global Works and Global Works Community Fund collaborate with existing non-profit organizations to provide scholarship opportunities for students. Our current partners include:
It has been a great experience working with the JKCF this year. Working closely with JKCF mentors, GW will be traveling with 4 students this summer in France, Peru/Ecuador, New Zealand/Fiji and China. This foundation helps lower income students of exceptional promise reach their full potential through education.
For the second year, GW is excited to work with Step Up to Excellence. This organization helps students “find a place in the world”. They offer support and experiences designed to broaden students’ horizons. They also help students disassemble falsely established limitations and grasp previously unattainable goals. We are looking forward to traveling with two energetic Step Up to Excellence students this summer! Website: http://www.stepuptoexcellence.org/
For the 4th year in a row, Global Works will be working with Summer Search. Their mission is to find resilient low-income high school students and inspire them to become responsible and altruistic leaders by providing year-round mentoring, life-changing summer experiences, college advising, and a lasting support network. Five students will be joining programs in 2011. Website: http://www.summersearch.org/
For the 3rd year in a row, Global Works has worked with Minds Matter. They are a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success. Three Minds Matter students will be joining Global Works this summer. Website: http://www.mindsmatter.org/index.asp
