From sending a shipment of 17 young cows to Puerto Rico to building more rewarding futures for 20.7 million families, we've come a long way in transforming the world for the better. And we're only scaling up our impact.

With the knowledge that every individual has the potential to lead change by Passing on the Gift, we can only imagine how much more potential we can unlock—how many more futures we can build. We've accomplished a lot, but we won't stop until we've seen the end of world hunger and poverty for good.
