Join us in supporting 5,000 high-need nonprofits

We’re helping communities that are systemically disadvantaged and those that will be severely impacted by a recession. Foundations, corporations, government— we need you to help nonprofits pull through this next crisis.

Strong Communities is a 10-city campaign that provides essential operational support to BIPOC nonprofits that are historically disconnected from resources.

Strong communities, even during the hardest times

Nonprofits are on the ground doing mission-critical work, despite challenging circumstances. Partner with us to make sure they have the resources they need to make it through.


“It’s been incredible to witness the possibilities of joining forces with several funders and companies who come together with the sole focus on taking action" format_quote

—Matthew Randazzo, CEO | The Dallas Foundation

As recession looms, nonprofits will see increased demand for services. Many of them, working in our most vulnerable communities, will attempt to meet that demand without critical resources or capacity.
