Career Prosperity Strategies
Types of Investors
Harris Pratt Pearls Who Prosper is a private foundation that makes $25,000 grants to host high schools to establish youth college scholarship funds at their high schools. Each high school appoints a TAC to administer the scholarship fund, including the Eligibility Program and the College Readiness Program.
Each fund selects students, called pearls, who are certified as pearls, and therefore have the right to earn scholarship eligibility. This is based on financial need and student college and career aspirations.
HPPWP forms an area investor network consisting of individuals and organizations sign a 12-month pledge to become sponsors.
Each fund has a sponsor group. The members of the sponsor group review the documents produced by the chapter members and make donations to a particular fund. If 1 of the 15 scholarships in the fund is named, the donations made must fund that scholarship. Otherwise, the donations may be used to fund any of the 15 scholarships in the fund.
An impact investor is an individual or organization that purchases
PWP Visionary Impact Investors
(Journey To Prosperity Transformation)
PWP visionary impact investors are former pearls who were at-risk and low-income. Now, having completed the Journey To Prosperity, they have been transformed into confident, committed, conscientious investors who have a vision of the difference they can make in their communities. They are seeking a financial return on their investments, and a social return that helps to alleviate social problems in their communities.
A beneficiary is a high school pearl who has received college scholarship one scholarship and enhancements via promise letter.
The financial return to an impact investor is generated from the fulfillment of pearl promise letters. The pearl promises to donate to a chapter each year based on the type and level of prosperity that pearl enjoys that year in work life.
This establishes a series of "PWP Donation Years" for that pearl.
Later, during these donation years, the chapter that receives the donations, allocates a percentage of donations received to that impact investor.
