Neighborhood Builders®

Since 2004, we've trained nearly 2,000 nonprofit directors and emerging leaders in the United States.

Through investments like Neighborhood Builders®, we’re leveraging the full resources of our company to help nonprofit leaders tackle poverty in communities across the country. 

Our Neighborhood Builders program provides grants and leadership development to nonprofits, and helps them build a stronger presence in their communities. This investment builds on our philanthropic commitment to help address community development, basic human services, workforce development and education. Since Neighborhood Builders began, it’s become the nation’s largest philanthropic investment in nonprofit leadership development.

Strong nonprofit organizations provide essential services that improve the health and enhance the vitality of communities in the United States. Whether connecting the unemployed to skills and education they need to succeed, helping low-income families gain access to affordable housing, or providing access to food and other basic needs, each nonprofit’s mission is valuable.

Many nonprofits struggle to keep pace with increased demand for services, resulting in limited resources to address important issues in local communities. That’s why we started Neighborhood Builders — to promote the leadership potential and operational capacity of nonprofits, empowering them to meet the changing needs in local communities.
