For 10 non-profits they are getting a New Year gift that others could only dream of. Queen of Green is gifting $10 million of IPO stock to the 10 non-profits that are leveraging technology to serve the needs of their members in an effective and efficient way.
Gill Wallace Hope, the first woman green technology billionaire was greatly influenced by Bill Bradley and the report $100 bn Non Profit Opportunity which demonstrated that 200,000 US Foundations had $2.12 trillion of cash and assets, yet kept 95% in the bank and only utilized 5% each year to serve the needs of their target group.
The US Foundation sector adopted the minimum legal requirement of disbursing 5% as best practice which means that only $19 out of $20 are kept in the bank whilst sick children, homeless, cancer patients, veterans, seniors etc go without vital services and support that donors gave their funds for.
Hope says “The people in the Foundations are caring and committed people, it’s the system that is dysfunctional and out of touch with modern supply and demand management”.
Hope challenged the thinking of some of the top fund managers and then decided to apply technology to every aspect of her network and demonstrate that you could run a business and financial model that invested 95% and operated on 5% completely turning the old industrial age model on its head.
Now she has proved that capital seeking a return is also demanding efficiencies. She has attracted capital from G20 Governments, Sovereign Wealth Funds, Forex, Hedge, Faith-based, Foundations, Corporations and green consumers for her Queen of Green IPO in January 2012 which is expected to be 7x over-subscribed.
