We believe everyone should have
access to equitable opportunities. 

In addressing this, we are guided by a vision of building equitable communities: a world in which all individuals have opportunities to build an equitable life.

Our Approaches

We believe philanthropists should take an active role in their own mission, and not just be primarily grant makers. At CoNimby® impact isn’t a buzz word, it’s the backbone of our community development efforts.
