Our Strategies:

  • We support organizations and leaders that build civic engagement and power in low-income communities.   
  • We invest in the development and retention of adult leaders who build relationships, organize and lead underrepresented communities.

  • We strengthen the capacity of organizing groups to train leaders to engage in meaningful community-led campaigns and advocacy, and collaborate with partner organizations and coalitions.

Our Desired Outcomes:

  • Grantee organizations have strong organizing and management capacities. 

  • Membership increases year to year.

  • Leaders are retained and continue developing their skills and take on deeper responsibilities. 

  • Over time coalitions and partners work together and campaigns show progress: members increase their civic engagement and influence local institutions and government. 

  • Leaders and communities are empowered and transformed.
