Humanity Forward Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization determined to advance basic income through pilots and programs. Job displacement, income inequality and automation are serious threats facing American society, pushing more families into poverty.

Our focus is to develop and demonstrate the efficacy of Universal Basic Income as a real solution to some of the biggest challenges we face today.

We are in the midst of the greatest economic transformation in the history of our country.

The movement for basic income is only just beginning, and we can’t build a brighter future without including everyone. Together we can help create a society that works for everyone.

A better world with a human centered approach is on the horizon.
Come build a better future with us at Humanity Forward Foundation.

Partnering with the 1K Project to help those most in need directly
In partnership with the 1K Project, Humanity Forward Foundation assisted over 1100 families with approximately $3.3 million during the fall of 2020. The 1K Project utilized a network of trusted connections to match families impacted by the pandemic with those who are committed to provide them with $1,000 a month for three months. The results of this program were astounding. Many participants shared their appreciation and details on what the money was used for including food, utilities, rent or mortgage, transportation, childcare and medical care. The data collected from this project such as how families were identified, matching donors with participants and the disbursement of funds are key to improving the effectiveness of this pilot for wider adoption and implementation.
