Unite to create positive, lasting change for people in need.

We focus on the two foundations of better lives:

Financial Opportunity
Ensuring that individuals and families have safe housing, healthy food, quality childcare,and earn enough to support themselves.

Educational Success
Ensuring that children enter school ready to learn, develop critical social and academic skills, and get the support they need to stay in school and graduate.

Our approach

  • Harnessing the power of communities working together to create lasting change
  • Identifying the most pressing issues and targeting resources to the areas of greatest need
  • Funding the most effective nonprofits and programs, measuring their progress, and providing them with extensive support to further help them succeed  
  • Mobilizing thousands of volunteers each year
