You (yes, you!) have a unique opportunity now to improve the lives of millions
If you have gotten this far on the website, you are our “target audience”!
If you are frustrated by our nation’s lack of progress in improving health, in reducing racial disparities and income inequalities, and in preparing our children adequately for success in their lives—you should consider investing in our approach.
2022 is our first big fund-raising year.
After laying the groundwork for over seven years at our own cost, we are looking for significant grant-investments by a small number of high-net-worth individuals and impact-oriented foundations. We are searching for like-minded financial partners, who are committed to move beyond outrage over the status quo, and past the failures of other approaches to move the needle—to actually making major improvements in our country.
(This is a donation-investment—a 501c3 tax-deductible contribution/grant, but with the impact and accountability of a financial investment.)
You will be hard-pressed to find a better social investment or a higher economic ROI impact.
You won’t see a 1000x ROI in your private wealth account (unless you founded a $1B+ “unicorn”!). But this is a chance for you to see that large a return in your “social wealth account,” and personal moral balance sheet:
We will calculate your social ROI based on our results as part of our Investor Accountability Reports.
Co-Founding with Us
What is more, we are still early enough in our growth, that you and anyone else committing financially to our work in 2022 will be considered a Co-Founder.
We started with a blank slate. No one else had figured out how to reverse decades-long trends of inactivity and unhealthy nutrition and social-emotional unwellness in a realistic, systemic, affordable, and financially sustainable way.
We have spent many years at our own cost and with our own time, and made tremendous progress. [link to About/History] This has reduced the risk for your donation-investment—and increased the chances of high impact & ROI.

Ideally, we are looking for a conditional commitment of 0.1% to 0.25% of your assets. As long as we continue our progress, you will continue to invest with us in our work. In most cases, we are asking for an initial investment in the $25,000-$500,000 range and an initial conditional commitment of at least $100,000.
“Conditional commitment” is not a legal obligation—more importantly, it is a moral one. And it requires that Healthy Future US makes significant progress, in order to expect you to continue investing in us. You hold us accountable, and you decide if we have made enough progress to justify an additional donation-investment. But as long as we are making adequate progress, we can count on you for a certain minimum amount of money to help sustain our work.
Frankly, if we don’t have a long-term commitment by our co-founding donor-investors, we won’t have the cash on our balance sheet to be able to hire the people we need to make this happen. To achieve our goals in just one state, this requires multiple full-time-equivalent people working over many years. And now more than ever: it’s a “buyer’s market” for great people—and we only want to bring in great people. To persuade them to leave what they are doing and join us, we need at least 3 years of committed financial support per person recruited.
If you think that is a lot to ask, let’s talk about it. If you have gotten this far in reviewing our work, we are clearly striking a chord with you. So let’s discuss how we can partner to make major sustainable improvements in our country together.
