Green Dot Ambassadors

Highly Effective Philanthropists Dedicated to Great Public Schools for All Students

Green Dot Ambassadors form a dynamic community of professional and philanthropic trailblazers who join with Green Dot at the front line of public education to accelerate our mission.

Hands-on Philanthropy

Ambassadors practice philanthropy that is focused, urgent and effective. Our robust calendar of opportunities bridges the gap between Green Dot students and the most influential political, philanthropic and business leaders in the community, while also facilitating connections between fellow Ambassadors.

Ambassadors give or raise a minimum annual gift of $5000 to help Green Dot pilot and scale innovative initiatives creating pathways for students to and through college.
