Bring bold systems-change innovations to life through partnership with social change pioneers



Do your top grantees have big ideas with systems-change potential—that are stalled because their organizations don’t have the bandwidth to move them?

  • Provide top grantees the strategic capacity to launch their initiatives

  • Develop a learning cohort that pairs some of your field’s most promising younger leaders—especially Black and Latino CEOs—with accomplished field veterans

  • Surface and scale initiatives with sector-shifting potential


Systemic Gap:

While CEOs typically use unrestricted capital to fund new initiatives, Black-led nonprofits have 76% less unrestricted capital than their white counterparts.


Investment: Provide Black and Latino-led nonprofits the implementation capacity they need to make strategic moves that advance their impact goals in the immediate-term and position them to access more capital and new networks longer-term.
