How We Do It

The Big Picture

We believe meaningful progress and lasting change can only be achieved by addressing the larger systems that create barriers. Communities have complex needs, so we take a comprehensive approach.

Mission in Motion

Coordination and Cooperation

A whole community is a system of interconnected parts, each relying on one another to achieve large-scale, sustainable change. By supporting existing connections and creating new ones through place-based, resident-lead solutions, we advocate meaningful change to the public policies and social systems that impact our communities.

Grant Partnerships

 
 
 

We carry out our mission by partnering with organizations that are active and engaged within the communities we serve. These stakeholders already have the insight and initiative, so we act as a fiscal intermediary and connect them to capital and resources.

When vision meets investment, great ideas yield meaningful change.
