For 2016, Global Tassels will be raising funds to support our selected GT Student Leaders as they prepare to be the 1st Global Tassels Cohort. Funds directly from this campaign will go towards students' airfare, school supplies, and academic training. Your restricted gift will be an investment in our students' educational endeavors.


Founded in 2014, Global Tassels provides free college education for high-potential young leaders from developing countries, who will return to their communities upon graduation and support local initiatives to end poverty. We open doors to colleges and universities worldwide and we are committed to empowering our students to be leaders in their fields; engaging them in their communities; supporting their living sustainability, and shaping them to become the voices and forces of change for their countries. Global Tassels brings commitment and innovation to the task of strengthening education and building capacity in community service in these developing countries.

Our mission is to provide college education opportunities for under privilege youth with leadership qualities living in the developing world and to support local community based organizations with programs related to poverty reduction. Our pilot countries are Colombia, Côte d’Ivoire, Haiti, India, and The Philippines.

Global Tassels is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, headquartered in New York City with plans to expand operations in Washington DC, and Los Angeles, California. Our EIN # is 47-1467446 and our IRS DLN # is 7053266300004.
