The economic costs of childhood poverty alone are $1Trn a year, and an estimated 170,000 Americans die from poverty related illness annually.

‘Seed Money’ grants at the federal poverty guidelines will eliminate all poverty amongst American citizens. If we provide seed money to every American and simply tax back that income for those already well above the FPGs, the net cost for eradicating poverty drops to below $200Bn. That is an annual return of $800Bn. Over 10 years, these seed money grants would generate a return of over $8 Trillion, save 1.7 Million lives, and lift 34 million Americans out of poverty.

Darryl is an investor, community organizer and Rhodes Scholar. He co-founded a $200M+ public/private equity fund before stepping down to manage End Poverty. Make Trillions full-time in 2021. Darryl has extensive experience in finance, policy, research, economics, public health, asset management, and social reform. He has driven strategic decision-making at leading institutions such as McKinsey & Co., Evolent Health, and Genentech.
