It has now over $100 million USD committed towards its goals:

With Ripple for Good, Ripple is formalizing the company’s long-term commitment to mission- and business-driven social impact, starting with an additional allocation of of $25 million in giving. This builds on the momentum of more than $80 million in donations that the company has made this year to date.

The post highlights how 2 billion unbanked people could be joined up to the global economy through cryptocurrency. There is a challenge to offer better and more robust services for the poor, as well as improving financing on a micro level.

As of publication, Ripple for Good is currently partnered with:
