What we aim to solve

At its core, the mission of ThriveWorx is to promote human flourishing. Farming communities face many struggles. It is difficult to earn a living, to build a promising future, and to even be noticed by society. ThriveWorx creates sustainable solutions to poverty through a collective impact model that combines the efforts of business and philanthropy, resulting in solutions that are market-driven, locally-led, and globally-connected.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

ThriveWorx is an innovative non-profit that works in some of the poorest farming communities around the globe to create customized and sustainable solutions to poverty. We offer programs to strengthen communities in the following core areas: economic opportunity, transformational leadership, healthcare, education, and environmental stewardship.

We believe in the power of business to restore dignity and provide a pathway to a better life. That’s why we are creatively integrated into the supply chain of an unconventional coffee and tea social enterprise, Thrive Farmers. Thrive’s award-winning social impact model has rebuilt coffee supply chains and enabled coffee farmers to increase their net earnings from coffee sales by 350%. ThriveWorx then equips and empowers farmers and local leaders to drive development in their own communities. This for-profit/non-profit partnership creates immense synergies, cost savings, and relational equity that makes our programs effective.

Our solutions to empowering communities adhere to the following principles:
1) Market Driven: We restore dignity through authentic business relationships that tangibly bring economic opportunity and market access to those who need it most.
2) Locally Led: We empower local leaders to recognize their own talents and then utilize those gifts in a way that drives their community’s transformation.
3) Globally Connected: We connect communities with a network of global resources to fuel effective and lasting transformation.

In our first seven years, we launched programs in 27 communities across Guatemala and Costa Rica and have served over 28,000 people. We trained local leaders who started their own social impact projects, helped farmers have healthier families, improved education systems, brought hope to kids from disadvantaged communities, and created a rare unity among communities that were divided for decades. We have launched financial literacy programs for farmers, expanded high school leadership programs, enhanced school infrastructure, broaden youth leadership camps, and enabled access to clean water for thousands who have never had it. We expanded clean water to nearly 11,000 individuals, including households and classrooms in Huehuetenango. This program also offsets 1632 tons of CO2 while increasing disposable incomes of marginalized households in firewood savings. We continued to support teachers with character education tools. Over the next three years, we intend to export our model to new countries and possibly expand our work to supply chains outside of Thrive Farmers.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
