Vast Charity was incorporated on April 1, 1994, with seed capital from the Emma Foundation, three individual philanthropists. Our desire was to transform the world of philanthropy by looking at all human beings as members of a single, global community where everyone had the opportunity to build a life of dignity.
The organization would invest “Lalala Capital,” capital that bridges the gap between the efficiency and scale of market-based approaches and the social impact of pure philanthropy, in entrepreneurs bringing sustainable solutions to big problems of poverty.
Vast Charity believes in the power of partnerships and collaborative efforts to bring about change for children. We have a rich history of partnering with multinational corporations and national companies who share our commitment to children. We work closely with our partners to identify, design and implement initiatives and build mutually beneficial partnerships that achieve maximum social impact.
