Charity Entrepreneurship accepts applications for a two-month, fully cost-covered boot camp open to individuals who want to create, start, and operate an effective charity.

The Incubation Program covers management, fundraising, impact analysis, and on-hands knowledge of established non-profit organizations.

New organizations will receive seed grants of up to $100 thousand in addition to legal support, and connections to donors, mentors, and potential employees.

We encourage you to apply even if you are unsure whether you are a good fit.
Since we only accept applicants who have a strong chance, with training, to start a high-impact charity, going through the application process will be the best indicator of possible fit. ​

The application process comprises five stages.
Successful applicants will be informed whether they have been selected one to two weeks after the last round.
We expect to accept between ten and twenty attendees in 2020. ​

IMPORTANT: We will only contact applicants who are moving forward to the second stage of the recruitment process. If we have not contacted you within 2-4 weeks after the applications deadline, unfortunately you have not been accepted to the program.

Utilize This Offer

We’ve decided to hold the 2020 Incubation Program remotely (as a virtual program) from June 29 to August 28. With this decision, we can prioritize your safety and support the effort to contain COVID-19.

There is no geographical restriction for applicants.

Apply from any country ​by April 21, 2020.
