Welcome to the WorldVentures Foundation

Welcome to the WorldVentures Foundation.
With you, the WorldVentures Foundation will continue to impact children worldwide and spark change that will continue to reverberate for generations to come.

What’s in a name? In the business world–well, everything. A name not only identifies a company, but it also invokes feelings about who the company is. And though changing a company name can cause confusion for its followers―change can also be good.

For the past three years, the Manifest Foundation has served as the philanthropic extension of WorldVentures™, positively affecting children and communities across the world. And for the past three years, WorldVentures has been a constant contributor to the Manifest Foundation and that ongoing support is the reason for a very monumental change for us.

The Manifest Foundation is now officially the WorldVentures Foundation!

We made this announcement during UNITED! in Las Vegas and it was met with an overwhelmingly positive response from Reps who, in many ways, are part of the catalyst behind the name change. WorldVentures Representatives continue to go above and beyond in service to our foundation, so it was only natural that the new name reflect the strong relationship we have with the company, their executive team and the Reps who have donated their time, finances and resources to us. Becoming the WorldVentures Foundation makes it that much easier to publicize the work that will continue with our partnership with WorldVentures and allows every Rep who has participated in charity events with us to have a personal stake in what we do.

The other great news about our name change is that it’s more than just a name change!  Because of our continued involvement with WorldVentures, we are also launching a new way for Reps and DreamTrips Members to not only give back during our Bottle School trips to Guatemala , but to perform service projects as they embark on DreamTrips vacations, through VolunTour Experiences. Taking place in some of our most popular DreamTrips destination cities, these VolunTour Experiences allow Reps and DreamTrips Members to have fun while performing small service projects. What could be better than taking a vacation and doing a little good in the world?

And, to ensure our partners receive the maximum amount of assistance and resources that we can provide, 100 percent of donor-directed funds are now allocated to the Foundation’s impact partners, including Hug It Forward, Boys & Girls Club of America, The Nancy Lieberman Foundation , Youth Action International, the Singapore Children’s Society and Ciudad Alegria Cancun.

This name change, and all that comes with it, is a huge “thank you” to the WorldVentures team. We are excited about the work we have done and eagerly anticipate the influence we will continue to have. With you, the WorldVentures Foundation will continue to impact children worldwide and spark change that will continue to reverberate for generations to come.
