After 3 years of building Prosperity Candle, we have launched Prosperity Catalyst. The time is right for our nonprofit side – focused on incubating prosperity with training, support, and inspiration to women entrepreneurs – to grow.
Today, under Executive Director Siiri Morley’s leadership, Prosperity Catalyst is raising funds to grow our work into Haiti.
We have received grants from the State Department and UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) but we still have a funding gap to make our work a success next year.
Donations to Prosperity Catalyst will help train women in work readiness and candle-making, to rent a space, to invest in candle equipment, to build partnerships, and, most importantly, to build a team with the skills and passion to make this all happen.
To reach Prosperity Catalyst’s goals, generous donors have offered to match each dollar raised up to $30,000 before the end of the year. If you’re looking to help women through donations as 2012 winds down, here’s a chance to make every dollar go twice as far.

In the spirit of Women’s History Month, our thoughts are drawn to the many women who contribute to society in a myriad of ways while expecting nothing in return. They are hidden from view. Yet these women are transforming communities and making a positive difference in the world. They are unsung heroines.
March is about celebrating women… something we’re pretty excited about. There is so much to appreciate, so many barriers yet to topple, and so many amazing women to recognize for their accomplishments.
Ah, Valentine’s Day. Every year we look forward to it, but here’s the thing. Ever since Eve Ensler started One Billion Rising as part of her V-Day movement to end violence against women and girls, we’ve felt conflicted about this holiday.
