BENEFITING: PREVAIL FUND INC
Prevail Fund is seeking the support of individuals, institutions and grass roots coalitions that understand the importance of its work and recognize that, while talent is everywhere, opportunity is not. Through the gifts and efforts of many, both large and small, and often through quiet, yet profoundly effective channels, Prevail Fund is Making Change.™
About Prevail Fund
Prevail Fund partners with colleges, individuals and schools with vision – changing lives together in the hope of altering the course of history.
Our work is based on the potential of private philanthropy to promote global understanding in dynamic and continually expanding ways, through the education of exceptional young people. Scholar by scholar, we focus on the individual – building cross-cultural, educational and leadership experiences for some of the world’s future decision makers.
Prevail Fund promotes self-reliance, leadership abilities and
entrepreneurial skills in young people and young women,
in particular of little or no means. By assisting them to achieve radical transformations in their own lives, Prevail thereby helps them to help their communities - and in turn, the global community in the achievement of major progress.
In its relative infancy, Prevail Fund is making a substantial investment in furthering economic mobility and international understanding through education in the 21st century – primarily in sub Saharan Africa.
