How will SEED be funded?


The Economic Security Project (ESP) is a network committed to advancing the debate on cash transfers and a guaranteed income in the United States. ESP funds research to inform the debate, campaigns to expand access to cash, and cultural initiatives to inspire the public’s imagination.  Established in December 2016, they are co-chaired by Natalie Foster, Dorian Warren, and Chris Hughes.

The Goldhirsh Foundation is also providing funding by matching up to $250,000 in donations to SEED with aims to inspire and galvanize others to join them in supporting the exploration of a guaranteed income.

We will continue to seek support for SEED as we finalize the project's scope and plan. If you are interested in being a part of our vision, you can donate here. 100% of the funds will go directly to Stocktonians.
