We believe everyone should have
access to equitable opportunities. 

In addressing this reality, we are guided by a vision of worker ownership: a world in which all individuals have equal access 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 worker cooperative. It’s the driving force that allows us to develop, acquire, and operate equitable worker ownership opportunities across the country.
