For now, the website is simply encouraging people to sign up for updates. The homepage reads, “Arche: Greek word meaning ‘source of action,’” and adds “Well: a plentiful source or supply; a place we go to dig deep.” 

The couple announced their new charity in April and say the name of the organization has a lot of meaning behind it. In a statement obtained by HuffPost they said:

“We connected to this concept for the charitable organization we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name,” they said. “To do something of meaning, to do something that matters. Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon.” 

And although the organization’s site is just up, Markle says they’ve have been working since January.

“Part of our focus with the Archewell Foundation is to just ensure that we are helping foster healthy positive communities ― online and off ― for our collective wellbeing,” the duchess said at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit last month per HuffPost.

She says the organization is  “Archewell in action.”
