FUNDERS FUEL OUR FIRE

Your support is an investment in hardworking women and a better future for families around the world. Most women come to SBS earning around $1 a day. We help them launch their own small businesses and earn enough money to send their children to school, pay for medical care, and acquire safe housing. Empowered as businesswomen, SBS graduates contribute to their local economies and raise confident children who will break the cycle of generational poverty.

By investing in international entrepreneurship, our donors help women realize their true potential. Together with these women, and our generous partners, we are forging a future without poverty.

BURSARY BRINGS IT HOME

What is a bursary gift?

Bursary donors make it possible for change-makers to deliver our proven entrepreneurship education in their communities. Their gifts fund scholarships for two nonprofit representatives to attend Street Business School’s transformational Immersion Workshops (link to Immersion Workshops page). Once trained, they share the gift of entrepreneurship with hundreds of women, who go on to change their lives for the better.

OUR HEROES

We are fortunate to be supported by individuals, family foundations, organizations and corporations. Our funders fuel our mission to deliver entrepreneurship education around the world. Their support for international entrepreneurship has touched 52,000 lives so far, and as we multiply our impact with the help of local organizations, we know this is only the beginning. Together, we will lift 1 million people from poverty by 2027.

SBS enables the people it serves to change their lives and those of their families and their communities. They emanate a ripple effect that spreads for the betterment of all who touch it.

Andy Bryant - Segal Family Foundation

Empowering women through entrepreneurship creates change for families and communities. Street Business School partners with local women to develop their entrepreneurial skills, build their confidence and increase their financial literacy creating an innovative, achievable, and scalable pathway out of poverty. The Schooner Foundation is proud to be a funding partner for SBS and their proven expansion initiative.
