Our partnerships span communities and sectors, bringing together diverse leaders and organizations to achieve common goals.
Guided by data and our partners, we drive experimentation in promising, untested approaches and accelerate proven ideas for change.
We learn from our partners and invest in them so they can lead.
We believe that more power in the hands of more people drives social progress further and faster for everyone.
