We Can’t Wait estimates that over 50,000 people in the San Francisco Bay Area (SFBA) have over $10M in assets. Wealth-X’s 2021 report finds in the SFBA over 4,000 people with assets over $30M.
And Credit Suisse Research Institute’s Global Wealth Databook 2021 p. 127 tallies 1.5M people in the U.S. with over $10M in assets. That’s almost 0.5% of the 330M people. On a straight extrapolation, 40,000 are in the SFBA, but this region is wealthier than average, we estimate the number is over 50,00.
The We Can’t Wait Pledge
(sign on publicly or confidentially)
Are you an investor, donor, or network builder who thinks We Can’t Wait is on to something that can transform investing and giving? As a donor, are you prioritizing giving to advance climate solutions? As an investor, are you thinking beyond ROI to climate impact?
We invite you to pledge to align financially:
Invest more now in transformative climatetech startups and other companies that can quickly scale impactful solutions that mitigate or draw down emissions. Then, match your investment up to 1:1 with strategic donations (see below).
Donate more now — up to 10x this year — to the most impactful non-profit organizations and campaigns. This includes organizations focused on climate justice, workforce development, and policy advocacy that expand markets for climate solutions and support the startup ecosystems where we invest, as well as supporting We Can’t Wait's core team.
Consider if your favorite climate nonprofit or startup had a 10x budget—what could they accomplish?
Are you in — at any level?
