Equipping and Scaling Social Innovation
The Civic Accelerator is seeking applications from early stage for-profit and nonprofit ventures with innovative solutions to increasing financial health and economic mobility for underserved populations. The Spring 2017 Civic Accelerator – a 10-week entrepreneur boot camp and investment fund – will accelerate innovative, scalable ventures that improve financial outcomes and prepare families for financial success in the 21st Century economy.
Well Wishes of Gratitude
More than 25 years ago, our founder President George H. W. Bush created the Daily Point of Light Award to celebrate people making an extraordinary difference in their communities through volunteer service. Today, nearly 6,000 individuals and organizations have been recognized for their efforts to spark change and improve the world.
Volunteers are Points of Light During Refugee Crisis
As millions of refugees around our country and the world continue to strive for safety, freedom and opportunity, there are volunteers who act as points of light on the long and arduous journey to a better life.
Offering a Hand Up, Not a Hand Out
“I believe that a community is only as healthy as its weakest link. And I believe we have a social responsibility as a community to make sure that our entire community is healthy."
