The Global Good Fund Fellowship 2025 – $10,000 grants



The Global Good Fund Fellowship is a 12-month hybrid leadership program for social entrepreneurs around the world. We accelerate leaders who relentlessly tackle the most pressing social issues to create a more sustainable and just future for all. Each leader receives professional executive coaching, c-suite business mentorship, $10,000 to spend exclusively on their leadership development, customized tools, resources, training and networking opportunities to scale their social impact.


Each Fellow is paired up with [1] dedicated professional executive coach and [1] dedicated c-suite executive who serves as a business mentor. Over a 12 month period Fellows connect with their executive coach and business mentor via phone/Skype/WhatsApp.


We take a holistic approach to create change by building resilient, competent and successful leaders through our hybrid Fellowship. Our Fellows raise 3x the capital in service of social change because of the opportunities afforded by our program.

  1. 360° Assessment – Fellows take GGF’s proprietary leadership  assessment and gain a panoramic view of their leadership skills.
  2. Executive Coaching (Virtual) – Fellows use the results of the 360 assessment as a starting point to work with their executive coach and create a personalized Leadership Development Plan.
  3. Business Mentorship (Virtual) – Fellows are matched with a C-suite business executive, who serves as a mentor, and receives intensive 1:1 support to help them successfully grow their business.
  4. Annual Summit (in-person) – Fellows participate in an Annual Global Good Fund Summit each spring. Our summit is a 4-day curated leadership development experience that combines training, networking and bonding among Fellows, alumni and valued members of the GGF ecosystem. 
  5. Targeted Funds – Fellows receive a $10,000 grant to explicitly be used on their leadership development.
  6. Peer and Subject Matter Expert Network – Over the course of 12 months, Fellows are part of a global cohort of leaders positively impacting the world. GGF facilitates intentional opportunities for Fellows and alumni to engage and learn from each other as well as a variety of industry experts so that they can be best equipped to address complex challenges.
