Initiatives.

As a national intermediary, we hold relationships across our network that help us identify emerging needs and trends, and direct capital where it can be best put to work. Our initiatives serve three main purposes: 

Growing a network of leaders who are building community wealth. 

Investing in this network by deploying capital towards ideas that challenge our thinking, social norms, and systems.

Shifting the capital ecosystem by encouraging wealth-holders to deploy capital in ways that shift power and build equity.


Our initiatives are designed to shift capital into communities, uplift local leaders, and accelerate the development of equitable economies.

Current Initiatives

Leadership and Field Building

  • For Community Leaders

For nearly two decades, we’ve been (re)structuring a more equitable economy alongside a network of local leaders who are building alternative approaches to business, philanthropy, and investing. Today, we connect wealth-holders and wealth-builders to create lasting wealth in marginalized communities.
