FT Cares Foundation understands that from everyone who has been given much, much will be required. Through you, our employees, we have helped transform the lives of others through various organizations and initiatives. We’ve participated in many local acts of charity, along with several national organizations. Though we have done some work with global initiatives, we feel now is the right time to get even more involved at a global level...to help those who most need it, on so many continents around the world.
Each time you help fund an entrepreneur through an Opportunity International loan, you are helping to grow a business. Empowering people in this way gives them the opportunity to support themselves and their families, and you help to break the cycle of poverty that affects a large proportion of people in the world.
FT Cares Foundation is pleased to partner with Opportunity International to help create change; to help overcome poverty and to transform lives. Together, we WILL change the world!
Every dollar invested in Opportunity becomes $6 invested in microenterprises over the course of 5 years.
As loans are repaid, the money is lent to new entrepreneurs again and again, multiplying the impact of each dollar over time. Check out our estimate of your group's collective impact as your donations are recycled and reinvested!
