Hollistic believes in the conscious investing of capital in people, ideas, and projects that can create a positive and meaningful impact on society. Our methods include rewarding exceptional humanitarian work, offering fellowships to support academic work in humanitarian fields, facilitating sponsorships towards co-developed programs with select non-profit organizations, and mobilizing private investments in social and environmental capital projects, each of which is further described below. Contributions towards any of our capital programs are set at a minimum of $500, or its equivalent in another currency. Smaller, general contributions towards our humanitarian efforts are also welcome, and may be made directly via the shopping cart page.
HEPA is our annual award for exceptional and distinguished work completed in any humanitarian project by an individual or their organization, including through the overcoming of significant challenges of any form of injustice or oppression. Nominations are accepted through March and April of each year, and are made from any person in an academic- or policy-related position globally, as well as from our internal board, on behalf of another individual or organization. Each nomination requires a detailed assessment of the reasoning for the nomination. The award includes a monetary sum to be used towards the acceleration of the award winner's humanitarian project efforts within one year of receiving the award. For further details, contributions, and applications to the HEPA program, you may reach us through the respective form at the bottom of this page.
H-Scholar is our annual scholarship program that awards a monetary scholarship contributed by our donors to be used towards funding the selected recipient’s academic degree program (Master’s level or higher) and/or teaching, research, or policy work at any well-acclaimed university in the world in a field related to humanitarian work. The scholarship program accepts applications through March and April of each year. Scholarship recipients are required to demonstrate professional work towards the improvement of the plight of an underprivileged segment of society and must also serve in the role of an independent contractor for our organization or any of our selected partners within one year of receiving the scholarship. Additionally, each H-Scholar is assigned a mentor who will work with them in a coaching capacity during the first year of their academic program. In exceptional cases, the scholarship may be extended to alternate, private, or professional forms of humanitarian-related training or activities outside of a traditional academic setting. For further details, contributions, and applications to the H-Scholar program, you may reach us through the respective form at the bottom of this page.
H-Fellow is our fellowship program for loan repayment. In this program, any individual (or in certain cases, organizations) with debt accrued for any reasonable and verifiable purpose and a demonstrated inability to repay their debt, may apply for our debt repayment program, which is covered by one or more of our donors. Accepted applicants must commit to providing independent contract humanitarian work for our organization or any of our selected partners for a period of time determined to be commensurate with the debt. Participants can potentially graduate the program debt-free and with the title of "H-Fellow," representing our sign of respect for these newfound alchemists of society. For further details, contributions, and applications to the H-Fellow program, you may reach us through the respective form at the bottom of this page.
H-Philo is our philanthropy program, enabling the settlement of one's debt to another individual or organization by earmarking a mutually agreed upon percentage of the debt towards humanitarian work. In this program, any individual or organization that owes a monetary amount to another individual or organization for any reasonable and verifiable purpose may apply for a percentage of their debt to be used towards humanitarian work by our organization or any of our selected partners. Both participating parties will receive the title of “H-Philo” as recognition of their status in the program and as a sign of respect for these newfound caregivers of society. This arrangement incentivizes philanthropic work and can also help to facilitate a quicker and more positive debt repayment experience. For further details and applications to the H-Philo program, you may reach us through the respective form at the bottom of this page.
