We were founded by four siblings in 2006 under the name of our flagship program, White Envelope Project. Since its inception, the program has attracted national media attention that has resulted in exposure to more than 5 million people in over 100 countries.
We continue to be entirely volunteer-run and donor-supported and are proud to be able to spread this message of giving around the world without any permanent staff, office space, etc.
Ben currently leads market research and competitive intelligence at ADP - the HR and payroll company. He has a wealth of nonprofit and business experience, and he leads the group. Expedition Give is Ben's baby, and he's led the program to a successful, growing state.
