Maverick Collective represents the future of philanthropy. I can apply a risk-tolerant approach and a ‘startup’ mentality to jumpstart important projects for scale that otherwise may not get funded. Amy Dornbusch

Be a Maverick:
Go where other
funders won't

Members are boldly funding where traditional donors miss the mark--new approaches, taboo topics, and long-term systems change. Projects are co-designed with impacted communities to uplift local solutions and test their potential for impact. Promising solutions unlock new resources and shift global health practices for large-scale change.
