There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women ~Kofi Annan
When you Say Yes to FundRiseHER™, you are making an important contribution towards creating a gender equal Caribbean.
Crowdfunding provides financing for projects, by pooling small contributions from a large number of people, who give from anywhere in the world. FundRiseHERTM will leverage the power of crowdfunding to foster access to capital for women entrepreneurs.
It’s EASY and CONVENIENT and you have CHOICES.
When you Say Yes, you will be sowing into the lives of women entrepreneurs and helping us to grow the pool of funds that will be available for grants.
Be On the Team
Running a crowdfunding campaign is a team sport and we can use all the help we can get especially to amplify the message. So if you are a blogger, or have special skills in marketing, social media, or if you want to help us recruit persons to seed our crowdfunding campaign, we want to hear from you.
Tell us about you want to help. We will be in touch.

Be a RiseHER
500 or more men and women pooling their resources to do a great thing!
Can we do it? Yes WE can!
The OECD advances that “women’s economic empowerment and their ownership and control of productive assets speeds up development, help overcome poverty” inter-alia, and that they “typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men”.
THAT IS AS GOOD AS ANY REASON FOR US TO BOLDLY ASK FOR YOU TO ENGAGE WITH US and Be A RiseHER.
WE ARE INVITING YOU TO PLEDGE $1000 TO THE FUNDRiseHER™ PROGRAM. STAND WITH US AND HELP WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS TO GET THEIR WORTHY VENTURES FUNDED SO THAT THEY MAY GROW AND SCALE THEIR BUSINESSES AND CONTRIBUTE MORE PRODUCTIVELY TO OUR CARIBBEAN ECONOMIES.
- Make the pledge in your name; AND/OR
- Make the pledge on behalf of someone who selflessly helped you.

Contribute with Text Donations
We want to engage with all sectors in our Caribbean society to make FundRiseHER™ contribute to growing our economies. And we know that many of our people are still unbanked and/or have no credit cards. So in the spirit of our Inclusion value, we are working to establish arrangements with our telecom providers to also take contributions to the campaign using text donations.
We’ll tell you more about this once we have finalized the arrangements.
