We partner with social entrepreneurs and other leaders in our community to shift how government and philanthropy pursue social change so that all people can thrive.
An Ecosystem Approach
Driving big, equitable change requires more than backing individual organizations; we know that even the most high-impact organizations working in isolation cannot address the challenges America faces at the scale that they exist. Sustained, large-scale change demands collaboration across organizations and sectors. Our ecosystem building efforts engage social entrepreneurs, policymakers, philanthropists, and other national and local stakeholders to transform how government (the largest funder of social services) and philanthropy think about how to collectively pursue social change and allocate resources. Through this work, we leverage deep insights of social innovators in our community to influence how policies are shaped and how resources flow in the sector to help remove barriers to sustained social progress.
Our ecosystem building efforts have helped our community become an engine of innovation and dynamism in social problem solving.
We can do more than react to the rapidly arriving future. We can shape it, with a goal of achieving equity and opportunity for all.
