Earth Company selects one Impact Hero a year
– an exceptional social entrepreneur 
that has the potential to shape the future of 
developing countries in the Asia-Pacific.
We provide 
① tailor-made fundraising, 
② opportunity building, and 
③ nonprofit management coaching
specifically to maximize the Impact Hero’s potential.

OUR SERVICES

FUNDRAISING

Soliciting donations and writing grant proposals

One-time financial support does not ensure sustainable impact. At the same time, long-term support could result in over-reliance. In spite of this conundrum, no one can refute the importance of money to accomplish change. Therefore, aware of the complexity of financial assistance, Earth Company connects individuals and corporate donors to specific activities of Impact Heroes that have the strong potential to have a transformative and sustainable impact.

OPPORTUNITY
BUILDING

Boosting media presence
& developing partnerships

For social purpose organizations operating in low-resource settings, building their organizational reputation and brand presence are equally as important as fundraising. As such, Earth Company helps its Impact Heroes boost their media presence and develop strategic partnerships, both within and beyond their organizations’ countries of operation. Through this support, Earth Company seeks to provide long-term benefits to the work of Impact Heroes.

NONPROFIT
COACHING

Coaching and consulting in nonprofit management

The needs of our chosen Impact Heroes vary widely, as does their experience as a social entrepreneur and the maturity of their organization. For novice entrepreneurs, we offer specific advice and coaching on how to manage a nonprofit. For those with more experience, we provide specific advise on scaling influence and magnifying impact. Whatever their experience, we will advise our Impact Heroes according to their specific needs.
