The Draper Richards Foundation provides selected social entrepreneurs with funding of $100,000 annually for three years. The funds are specifically and solely for entrepreneurs starting new non-profit organizations. The Draper Richards Fellowships are highly selective.  They only award six fellowships per year in an effort to more fully engage with their portfolio of grantee organizations.
