IAPW Founders Circle

Ensuring the sustainability of our work

Our Founders Circle is an exclusive, invite-only collective of private donors committed to the sustainability of In a Perfect World.
IAPW 2015 in Review

By committing to a  multi-year giving plan, members of the Founders Circle allow In a Perfect World to continue allocating 100% of public donations to delivering our mission. This support also allows IAPW to plan for expansion of our infrastructure and programmatic impact, empowering more kids to change the world.

The Catalyst

The catalyst for the Founders’ Circle was a foundational gift from the late Sharon Keith. Her bequest was given to inspire grassroots donors to join in her dedication to building the next generation of leaders. 

Sharon was dedicated to her family and to helping students access educational opportunities to improve their lives. We are incredibly grateful to Sharon, her family, and her commitment to empowering youth everywhere.

“It is rare to find a service organization that has such a beautiful alignment of vision, mission, goals, and objectives that are equal parts inspiration and call to action. By leveraging an army of capable and committed long-term volunteers, IAPW has been able to hold operating costs to a minimum, ensuring that all funds raised directly support mission projects.”
