A huge part of what rebel Financial does is based on our dedication to prioritizing our clients’ best interests. However, putting people first does not stop with just our clients. Philanthropy is incorporated into our values and guides the philosophy behind our mission. Here, we believe that it is our responsibility to give back to our community and to help create a better future for the generations that will follow in our footsteps through charity. We actively take steps to support people and organizations with similar beliefs through charitable giving, support, and community involvement. We continue to contribute to charity opportunities through the Rebelution.
More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive. Kiva does this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva’s work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care. By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, you can be part of the solution and make a real difference in someone’s life. 100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes to funding loans.

Care for the future — Our non profit organization is dedicated to furthering the commitment of our people and government to invest in and develop our future knowledge and technology. We will primarily fulfill this mission by lobbying Congress to provide more funding to the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which will distribute these funds in the form of grants per their peer review processes. The rebel Financial Foundation was founded concurrently by Phil Ratcliff when he started rebel Financial to raise grant funds and awareness for scientific research, specifically for the NSF & NIH. While the rF Foundation is currently in the start-up phase of being a non-profit, Phil does most of the heavy lifting himself. We are striving to accumulate funding to hire our 1st lobbyist to start the journey. We are constantly on the lookout for partners to help our mission succeed!
