Why get involved?

Have you wanted the chance to do more than write a check to a philanthropic cause?  EMpower is structured to engage donors’ brainpower and interest as well as channeling financial resources wisely and efficiently.

You can:

  • Rest assured that 100% of your contribution goes directly to benefiting the local organizations supporting at-risk young people thanks to our Underwriters,
  • Participate in referring and approving grants,
  • Follow the progress of grantees through site visits and reports,
  • Join colleagues and like-minded friends who are also deeply engaged in our work.

What can you do?

  • Host an Evening with EMpower, typically themed around a grantee partner who is in town,
  • Join EMpower’s sports enthusiasts raising money for EMpower as they run, cycle, climb mountains…..and even bowl! Check out EMpowerUP! Global Sports Campaign
  • Create your own fundraising initiative: Integrate us into your wedding plans or gather friends and colleagues for a personal small event. We’ll help in the planning!
  • Join EMpower’s Next GEN if you’re a young professional <age 40 for networking, events and socializing– all for a good cause.
  • Join a Board Subcommittee: Development, Finance, Program,
  • Come to our events in the US, UK and Hong Kong!

For more, contact us in New York, London and Hong Kong.

In short, involvement with EMpower brings with it many rewards aside from knowing you’ve “done well”; we hope you will join us! To receive emails and information on EMpower, just simply register:
