Creating ripples of hope

Vision story

Ripples..! Making an impact, making a difference, giving hope, setting something in motion… imagine casting a stone in the water. Expanding ripples with an ever increasing impact. That is our shared passion: to contribute to solving problems in this world. Near or far away and on different domains: climate, poverty, disease, religious persecution, etc.

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples. Mother Teresa

MissionInvest aims to create ripples of hope. Provide a perspective for the vulnerable in this world. MissionInvest wants to join forces with Christian entrepreneurs and foundations in the conviction that God has given talents to each man in order to use those talents and achieve something positive. With your investments in knowledge, time and money MissionInvest invites you to contribute in a sustainable way to Christian projects with a clear idealistic or missionary purpose.

" that we might have hope" - Romans 15:4

Projects open
for funding

You have a mission, you have financial resources… but now you’re looking for the right project! A project that fits your mission. That is crucial to you! MissionInvest knows what that means. And that is why, I prioritize your personal needs and wishes. My goal is not to sell projects, but to mediate in the projects that suit you.

Core elements of MissionInvest projects are:

MissionInvest offers a wide range of different types of projects. Including philanthropy and impact investment. MissionInvest does not carry out the projects itself; it functions as an intermediary lean and mean directly with reliable organizations worldwide. This direct approach results in an average saving of 10-15% on your project budget.


Look here to get an impression of projects that are currently in full progress. With the help of MissionInvest these projects have already been 100% financed. Curious to find out why others opted for collaboration with MissionInvest?

MissionInvest plays the important role here of connecting the right people! It's not just financing; it is a passion and drive to make a difference. This is what connects us all together, investors and entrepreneurs. - Jaap Jan Verboom, Director of Truvalu

My passion

Hi, I am Wim Hasselman. What I find the most valuable conversations? Sharing thoughts about what matters most to you. You get a glimpse of one another’s heart. Only then it is about values that you share as Christians. The passion that you feel deep inside. Your beliefs, your vision and how you want to carry out that vision. Your personal mission! It gives you a focus and makes clear the viewpoint you have. Where you ultimately spend your energy, time and money. Sharing really becomes multiplying!

Business… a connection with entrepreneurs and business relations is certain; I speak their language, know their drive, love their optimism and their motivation to exceed the limits. I know the business world well; I have worked there with pleasure for 15 years. Then I deliberately switched to the NGO world; 18 wonderful years! In December 2018 I founded MissionInvest and became an entrepreneur myself. I know both worlds from the inside. And I also know that both worlds have a lot to offer each other! From that conviction it has always been my mission to connect entrepreneurs and foundations with the NGO world. I was really excited to discover the ideals of the entrepreneur and to adapt to his mission and vision and build bridges between the business and NGO world. Especially, in doing things together we realized the most beautiful projects.

Would you like to discuss your personal mission, your challenge or developing your own project? Do you want a sparring partner to discuss the choice between philanthropy and/or impact investment, about cooperation with charity organizations or are you looking for funds for your project? With MissionInvest I’ll be happy to be your sparring partner. Let’s create ripples of hope together!

Hope to meet you soon!
