Accelerator

Supporting organizations who are developing models to close the racial wealth gap by removing social, financial, and political barriers.

Through our three-month-long accelerator program, Common Future invests in a cohort of 10 BIPOC women and non-binary-led organizations that are actively working to dismantle economic inequality by giving power back to communities left out of prosperity.

We believe in an economy in which power is accessible to all, no matter their race and class. 
That’s why the Common Future Accelerator—2024 Cohort supports organizations developing models to close the racial wealth gap by removing social, financial, and political barriers that stand in the way of transformative change.

Organizations chosen to participate in the Common Future Accelerator receive:

$50K in unrestricted grants

An ecosystem of support

Peer to peer community

Top of its class personal coaching

World-class mentorship for growth

“At the beginning of the program we had $0 dollars and now we have a $250K budget. In 12 weeks I was able to pay myself to work on this full time and we successfully launched with an event featuring Heather McGhee with 500+ attendees.”

Jeremy Al-Haj, Founder of Missouri Workers Center

If your organization is committed to closing the racial wealth gap in your community, you can express interest in future Accelerator cohorts by sending us a note.

Last October, building on the success of our 2023 Accelerator program, we announced the search for 10 BIPOC women or nonbinary-led organizations working on models that address the racial wealth gap.

For our 2023 cohort, we received over 264 applications nationwide. This year, that number surged to over 500 applications, speaking to the need for unrestricted capital and community for BIPOC leaders doing this work. We need programs like this now more than ever.
