Sascha Meinrath believes that free and open communication is an inalienable right: one that should not depend on the whims of government or the ability to pay.

Changemakers pave the way to a brighter future. Donate today & double your support of changemakers!
Ashoka, as told by the members of our community.
Make the U.S. Brighter
Ashoka identifies and supports people who see the world not as it is, but as it could be; who seek to change a broken system instead of letting it continue. These people come in many different forms: they’re social entrepreneurs and business leaders, they’re journalists and storytellers, they’re parents and young people, they’re college students and teachers. What they have in common is a commitment to turning today’s dark spots into bright spots. We call them changemakers. And we’re working to find, connect, and multiply them at unprecedented rates across the U.S. and around the world.
To accelerate our work, we need support from you, our community of friends and donors. From now through December 31st, for every dollar you give to Ashoka U.S., the Jenesis Group will match it. Whether you can give $5, $5,000 or more, your contribution will power the changemakers who brighten our world with each passing day, and help us grow the next generation of problem-solvers.
Together, let's make the U.S. brighter. Donate today!
“Team Ashoka delivers impact by being a changemaker for the changemakers, and in doing so, delivers a compelling bang for one’s philanthropic buck.”
-James Jensen, Jenesis Group

Why this match?
The Jenesis Group is a private family foundation bringing innovation and an entrepreneurial ethos to philanthropy. As the founding partner of Ashoka United States, Jenesis has continued their commitment to Ashoka by challenging us with a million-dollar match to expand our community of supporters and friends. They recognize that our success in building an Everyone A Changemaker world will depend in large part on how well we engage with others and create roles for them as champions of this vision. Jenesis and Ashoka see this match as a timely opportunity to accelerate our growth and impact across the United States.
50 Days. 50 Bright Ideas.
It’s no longer enough to get by with a class on world affairs, and a series of memorized dates involving the rise and fall of Rome: ours is a world increasingly without borders, a world defined by constant collisions among people of wildly different backgrounds and cultures, where developments thousands of miles away can have […]Read More
