Our Impact Fund fuels a two-generation approach to building youth success and family stability to help more people break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. But the Impact Fund is about more than making grants to our nonprofit partners…it’s about moving the needle against poverty in a holistic, sustainable way.
Your Impact investment builds:
Capacity building for partners
Advocacy for sound public policy
Grant investments to nonprofits fighting poverty
