The Tour to End Poverty How to End Poverty in the United States and Make Trillions of Dollars Doing It A universal basic income at the federal poverty guidelines ([email protected]) ends financial poverty. The economic costs of childhood poverty alone are $1 Trillion a year, and an estimated 170,000 people a year die from poverty in the United States. If we provide [email protected] to every American and simply tax back that income for those already well above the FPG, the net cost for eradicating poverty drops to below $200Bn. That is an annual return of $800Bn. Over 10 years, [email protected] would generate a return of over $8 Trillion, save 1.7 Million lives, and lift 34 million Americans out of poverty. We are paying trillions of dollars to keep people in poverty. This must stop.


We are raising $1B for our social impact fund, and $100M for basic income pilots across the USA.

EPMT is structured as a charitable trust. That means that all investments are tax-deductible.

We are an evergreen fund that has no intentions of pulling out capital. We will reinvest all profits right back into the fund to continue to invest in communities with the lowest incomes.

Darryl Finkton Jr is the Managing Partner of the fund. He has agreed to manage the fund without any salary, management fees, or carried interest. That, combined with our charitable status, makes EPMT best-in-class in terms of both cost of capital and tax efficiency.
