CAPACITY

The ones closest to the problem are the ones closest to the solution. Transformative change and impact work when led by those on the ground.

Capacity

​​ ​​

Our communities need transformative impact driven by their own strengths and priorities. When we say “capacity” we mean elevating and enabling transformative change for us, by us within our communities.That means changing the face of the social sector community by community and empowering these new leaders with the tools they need to succeed.

Impact Advising (Private and Philanthropic)

We help private companies and philanthropic funders shift their practice to support organizations and projects that catalyze and deepen self-determination in our communities.

Restorative Philanthropy

We are working with institutional funders to shift and improve who and what receives sufficient philanthropic support, with an emphasis on historic and structural inequities playing out in today’s social sector. We accomplish this by developing our own philanthropic “fund” and re-granting to individuals/organizations led by women/POC.

Just Capital

We are in the early phases of developing a micro-venture capital fund to support for-profit ventures led by women/POC.
