Though nearly one in four children in DC experiences poverty, the right interventions increase the likelihood that they will be on track for success. Local nonprofits embedded in and trusted by the communities they serve have the capacity to build lasting bonds with residents, understand their needs and strengths, establish networks of support, and foster innovation. Fair Chance strategically selects nonprofit “partners” (most identify as persons of color) who are ready to take their organizations to the next level but face challenges in raising capital, recruiting and training a workforce, handling regulatory matters, and measuring impact. It works with them (at no charge), developing long-term relationships of trust and building their capacity in organizational and financial management, fundraising, and leadership effectiveness. The goal is always this: build stronger more resilient community-based nonprofits placing more children and youth on a path out of poverty.
