Funders

Funders are working in an increasingly complex environment where a variety of actors must be influenced – both inside and outside their own walls and the philanthropic sector. Many funders we work with seek to strengthen organizations, networks, and leaders through program and capacity building support. They also help to ignite change at the field level by working with philanthropic partners and by thinking beyond the typical frameworks for funding.

We work with institutional and family foundations focused on specific issue areas as well as on movement-building more broadly. We work with capacity building initiatives and programs within foundations. We also work with funding collaboratives as they design and learn from new initiatives. Additionally, we have partnered with foundations on original research that advances shared interests on behalf of the social justice sector. 

Learn more about how we can partner with you to increase philanthropic impact in the social justice sector.
