 The Problem 

Only those with an income higher than needed to satisfy basic needs can save and accumulate wealth

Well over 700 million people living on less than $1.90 a day* cannot save and build up wealth.

1% of the world's population owns twice as much wealth as 6.9 billion people.

Wealth For The World accumulates assets for those who cannot do so themselves

The return on these assets is donated to charitable organisations that fight extreme poverty.

Wealth For The World collects donations that go into its assets

The assets are invested so that they follow the general upward trend of the global stock market
70% of the annual return goes to our donation partners
30% remain to continuously grow the assets

[T]he idea of the founders of "Money for the World" is longer-term: the assumption is that the invested money will grow over a longer period of time and that afterwards more can be donated than has been collected in donations.
Projects like WealthForTheWorld ensure that we have sufficient funds in the future to be able to fight global problems like extreme poverty effectively.

We already have enough resources to provide a good life for all people, we just have to use them wisely. But what is the best way to do this? WealthForTheWorld provides a promising answer.

Even small donations to WealthForTheWorld develop a large volume of donations for good causes in the long term. An absolutely convincing concept!

It is above all time that speaks for the model: the assets - which remains untouched - grows with every donation as well as with the 30 percent that is reinvested annually.
Many people do not have the opportunity to invest surpluses on the capital markets and thus benefit from long-term positive developments. WFTW addresses this by collecting donations, investing them in the capital market for the long term and both donating and reinvesting the returns - a sustainable approach that I am happy to support!
