Maverick Collective is redefining what it means to be a philanthropist.

1 billion people living in extreme poverty img

The fastest way to end extreme poverty is to invest in girls and women.

Because when girls and women are healthy, safe and educated, they help transform societies and lift their communities and entire nations out of poverty.

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT

We believe that solving big problems requires more than money. It takes leaders who are willing to listen with empathy to the people they aim to serve, to fail and learn fast, and to lend their talents and voice to generate impact.

Co-Founder and Co-Chair Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway

“The Sustainable Development Goals make a clear call for more advocates, greater innovation, new resources and a sharp focus on improving the health and rights of girls and women. Maverick Collective was designed to respond to this call. When everyone contributes what they have to offer, we help lift girls and women everywhere.”

CO-CHAIR MELINDA GATES

“For many people, they want a different kind of engagement. They want to spend time figuring out what their passions are. They want to think hard about what—in addition to money—they have to add to the cause, whether that’s expertise, relationships, or skills. And they want to advocate, to help more people get fired up about these causes. That’s what Maverick Collective can do. It creates a community where this ambitious, broad-based vision of philanthropy can flourish.”
