seeding innovative solutions

that break the cycle of poverty for Bay Area youth

The problem: impoverished youth
U.S.

ranks last (or 2nd to last) out of the 74 richest countries in the world on childhood well-being. In addition, low-income youth fare worse on all individual measures of well-being*

The problem: philanthropy
85%

of funding goes to established programs and only 45% of funders consider contributing to startups**

the need

All kids deserve a fair chance to succeed. But some don’t get it, because of where they come from. Breaking the cycle of poverty is tough, but we have to try so that neighborhoods stop determining destiny. And to do so, we need effective organizations to join the fight.

THE SOLUTION

All Stars Helping Kids seed funds nonprofit startups

serving low-income youth in the Bay Area.
