Our Supporters

"I like how IDEX very carefully selects who they want to work with. IDEX goes to the most remote and neglected places and finds organizations that don’t yet have the kind of funding they need, but have enough internal structures and potential to grow." - Susan Kahn, IDEX supporter

"My experience as a donor and volunteer for IDEX has been an education in values driven philanthropy." - Jonah Silas Sheridan, IDEX donor and volunteer

"While travelling last year in Nepal, I was able to visit with ASHA, a long-time IDEX partner. It was then that IDEX’s work felt even more ‘real’ to me. I could see how effective the grants are in providing grassroots leaders with the fuel to be able to do even more in their communities." - Ravi Agarwal, IDEX donor

"IDEX truly focuses on helping grassroots groups build sustainable organizations that are dedicated to empowering community members." - Kellye Denton, a long-term IDEX volunteer
