World Centric provides funding for projects that meet specific criteria aligned with the impact we hope to have in the world. We do not typically donate to the general fund of a non-profit. We look for projects that have a significant positive impact in providing basic needs for communities and the environment, while making the most efficient and effective use of funding to achieve those results.
