inspiring passion, purpose, and productivity in the recovery community
Our mission is to provide funding, consultation, and mentorship to entrepreneurs in recovery or businesses that are solving the problems caused by addiction or mental health disorders.
EVERGREEN FUND AT A GLANCE
Since 2005, we have been helping entrepreneurs in recovery create new businesses across a wide range of industries including drug treatment, art, fashion, music, and television. In our version of James Truslow Adams’ concept of "The American Dream;“ each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth, position or ”addiction.”

“I’ve learned a lot from mentors who were instrumental in shaping me, and I want to share what I’ve learned.” — Herbie Hancock
We facilitate successful mentorships relationships where both sides benefit. In these relationships, the mentor experiences satisfaction and new perspectives by providing guidance and insight to the person seeking advice, while the mentee gains the benefit of experienced advice.

REMEMBERING DAVID BROWN STEWARD FOR HIS PASSION & PURPOSE
PROJECT: DAVID'S "PEA POD" HOTEL
Joseph Campbell talks about a hero's journey as a courageous act of a life lived in self-discovery. At the end of the hero's journey is not glorifying the hero but gaining the wisdom and the power to serve others.
David's life had passion and purpose, which inspired the Evergreen Fund development of the "Pea Pod" hotel. PEA is the acronym for People, Environment & Animals and a Pod is a place where seeds are nurtured and developed. The Pea Pod hotel is a community of social entrepreneurs and activists who share knowledge, resources, and inspiration to make the world a better place.
