Building wealth
for people in poverty
We are a non-profit that builds assets for people in extreme poverty.
WealthForTheWorld is a non-profit donation fund. We invest donations to us so that the fund's return follows the return of the global stock market. Every year, we donate one part of the return to organizations that fight poverty.

" identifies the most effective aid organisations worldwide on the basis of the latest scientific findings. In other words, the organisation that does the most good with an extra euro, i.e. helps as many people as possible as much as possible. In addition, we organise tax-privileged donations for this organisation in Germany."

[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 (...) 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!
