Our Mission

To accelerate community-driven social change by working with grassroots leaders and mobilizing their allies for transformative partnerships.

See why this matters

We believe that solutions to poverty, injustice and inequality must be led by community insiders - those who intimately know their own community.

But community insiders face many barriers to becoming organizational leaders often because of their race, socioeconomic status or culture.

Also, donors and allies at times can create harm unintentionally, or perpetuate inequalities through their generosity.

Our program was created to change this. We address the gap in access and inclusion of community insiders as changemakers in the global philanthropic sector, and mobilize donors and allies for transformative partnerships.

We can achieve our goals of making this world better for those on the margins when locally-led social change is our collective priority.
