In October, we announced a major new initiative to rethink our country’s approach to poverty. Between now and 2025, the Catalyst Impact Grant Program will provide $30 million in funding to 100 of the most promising nonprofit organizations, helping them accelerate their impact and demonstrate the potential of strategies based on empowerment.
Now, we’re proud to introduce the first 25 nonprofits and social enterprises who will be participating in the program.
Each of these Catalyst Impact Partners is committed to bottom-up, community-driven solutions—prioritizing individual transformation rather than transactional services. They leverage the power of local knowledge, inviting people closest to the problem to determine what they need to thrive.
As part of their participation in the program, they’ll receive Principle Based Management™ coaching and consulting, access to a new customer-first measurement method, and grants totaling up to $300,000 over three years.
“This initiative is about deepening our partnership so that Catalysts can scale their reach, better understand their impact, and ultimately transform the way society thinks about addressing social barriers,” said Evan Feinberg, executive director at Stand Together Foundation. “If these organizations continue to grow in their effectiveness, and everyone in the country hears about what they are doing, we can transform the entire social sector in America.”
Together, we aim to transform millions of lives and transform philanthropy with a simple premise: that investing in people and communities creates lasting change.
