Scaling For Impact

Investing to enhance and scale Thrive’s digital program delivery and fundraising.

What Is Scaling For Impact?

Thrive For Good is on a high-growth trajectory. The global food crisis is making our work all the more critical. To increase our impact, Thrive needs to continue to scale and develop more urgently needed resources first. 

Scaling for Impact is a campaign aimed at investing to enhance our resources, digital program platform, and fundraising efforts. 

We’re looking for supporters who want to join us in taking Thrive to the next level. Learn more about the project and how you can get involved below.

Who We Are

Thrive is spreading a naturally contagious model for growing health, organically.

We train and equip communities to create Life Gardens, so they can step out of poverty and teach others to do the same.


Our Vision

By 2025, Thrive will empower 1 million people in the developing world to lead healthy and sustainable lives by training them to grow nutritious and income-generating whole foods.

Scaling Up Objectives

When 2 billion people live on less than $2 per day, hope is distant. 

Preventable diseases linked to malnutrition kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. 45% of those deaths are children under five years old.

Thrive trains and equips people to grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods and medicinal plants.

With knowledge, simple tools, and starter seeds, people who can’t afford to buy healthy food can grow their own – sustainably. We call these projects Life Gardens because growing health is the first step to a thriving life.

Access to nutrition and disease-fighting food can save around 22,000 lives every week.

Thrive’s model for growing diverse, 100% organic food is nourishing the planet and people — sustainably.

The Thrive Institute is the first online training platform that equips students with the training needed to start ‘Life Gardens’, grow nutritious, disease-fighting foods and empowers them with the needed leadership tools to cascade learnings to their communities.

Thrive Institute courses are based on:

  • 10+ years of hands-on experience growing health.
  • Extensive consulting with world leaders in health and organic growing.
  • Over 1 million hours of training, research and applied practice.

The Thrive Gardening Academy is our North American food-growing course, launched in 2022.

  • Engage targeted Audiences with the North American Course.
  • Engage audiences to generate a significant lead pipeline.
  • Use inbound marketing and relational fundraising to significantly increase revenue.

Investing in IT to enhance and scale Thrive’s online North American Course delivery and digital fundraising to grow from 3,000 contacts to 25,000 contacts and scaling to impact 1,000,000 people around the world. We will grow our donor base to 3,000 people giving annually.
