Where does the money go?

A huge part of our mission here at Start the Wave is to FUND ACTION. We do this by redistributing money to projects that have a clear vision of creating a better world through well thought out action.

Thanks to your generosity, we are able to financially support grassroots initiatives around the world that are focused on creating positive and impactful change.

Moving forward, our primary focus will be funding grassroots projects that apply to Start the Wave during our bi-annual call for submissions.
