Since 2001, we’ve been on a mission to build economic power and wealth in communities most adversely impacted by racial and economic injustice. This includes incubating and funding innovative ideas that build local power and wealth in marginalized communities. And today we’re thrilled to share the next chapter in Common Future’s story, and the next big bet we’re making: we and Uncharted — a Denver-based social impact accelerator — are combining, with Uncharted merging into Common Future.
Uncharted brings talent, knowledge, and expertise that will accelerate the work of community-led ventures dedicated to economic justice. To date, Common Future has shifted $280 million toward community investment across the United States, and Uncharted has worked with 200+ social impact startups and helped them raise over $390 million. As a result of this merger, there will be more capacity to support and uplift inclusive economic innovations.
As Common Future’s CEO, Rodney Foxworth, explains, “We are constantly learning, adapting, and evolving to become the best version of Common Future, to be even more equipped to meet our mission and vision of building economic power in BIPOC, rural, immigrant and working class communities. This merger with Uncharted reflects the kind of bold, courageous thinking that is shared by both Common Future and Uncharted. The similarities between our culture and mission made this a clear decision for the leadership of both organizations.”
