We find and fund the most promising
There are thousands of organizations, nonprofit leaders, and new ideas that have good intentions of creating opportunities, but we do the homework for you by rigorously vetting every investment we make and only funding the most effective and promising. We build strong partnerships, trusting that the leaders behind the solutions know the best path to serve their communities. Our Strategy to Find + Fund Solutions

We partner. We tailor.
Together, we strengthen.
Removing barriers to economic mobility isn’t a one size fits all approach, and that goes for organizations, too—once we write a check, we tailor our partnership to provide support wherever it’s needed through customized workshops, leadership development opportunities, and cohort-based programs that meet organizations and leaders where they are. Our Work to Partner + Strengthen Organizations
Our POC-Led: Impact Through Equity program exemplifies our work to support the leaders of our grantees. It is designed by and for our grantees’ leaders of color to strengthen their leadership trajectories and organizational impact goals.
We investigate and change conditions that prevent people from reaching prosperity.
We’ve learned in our nearly 20 years that it’s not enough to only provide an intervention at the moment it’s needed. It’s also essential to understand the root causes of poverty and invest in ways that prevent those challenges in the first place. We dig deep into the issues we’re fighting to solve and use those learnings to change systems for maximum impact. Our approach to investigating + changing conditions of poverty
Research + Innovation
We invest in research to better understand issues of poverty and invest in new ideas that work to address them.
