In early 2021, Hedge for Humanity received a charitable endowment of $175,065.67. Since then, the H4H board has been strategizing how best to allocate and utilize these funds. Overall, the endowment provides a considerable runway for general overhead expenses and empowers H4H to focus more substantially on its projects and missions.

The general objective of H4H is to provide sustainable means of global value transfer and basic income. In the coming months, we will be focusing on funding efforts and growth for Manna and the H4H fund, two projects that both help fulfill that mission.

As 2020 comes to a close, we’d like to reflect briefly on the progress that’s been made over the past year and the current state of the various projects connected to H4H. It has been a difficult year for many people throughout the world due to the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
