New Profit’s New Wellbeing in Education Initiative

Deadline: 7/27

New Profit is seeking to invest in and partner with organizations focused on supporting wellbeing of constituents in education, a focus area that has always been important and is even more critical now given our nation's racial backlash and calls to action against police violence targeting black and brown communities, coupled with the disruption and challenges associated with COVID-19 pandemic. Embedded in this focus is our belief that leaders who are proximate to the most systematically underserved communities bring skills and expertise that our society needs to advance equitable wellbeing and influence a new era of problem-solving. As part of this process, we are working with parent leaders in our selection process to ensure we are investing in solutions that meet the needs of their communities. 

Eligibility:

We invite you to apply if your organization:

  • Provides school and/or instructional supports to advance the wellbeing of young people, educators, and/or families in education as a primary element of the organization’s work 
  • Is currently serving in at least two distinct geographies and aspires to ultimately have national impact/influence either through directly scaling its work and/or indirect strategies 
  • Operates and primarily serves individuals in the U.S. 
  • Has independent 501(c)(3) status
  • Currently has an annual revenue of at least $1.2M 
  • Is run by a full-time Social Entrepreneur*
  • Is run by a leader who centers equity in their work and is proximate to the communities we collectively aim to serve. As Bryan Stevenson says, “There is power in proximity. Get close to people and communities who are at risk – and stay close. We don't have to have the answers; instead, we have to want to get close.”
    • Aligned with this, New Profit is committed to ensuring at least 50% of our investments are in organizations led by Social Entrepreneurs of color to help address the funding inequities that hold back our ability to break through on entrenched challenges facing our country.
    • We prioritize investing in organizations led by Black, Indigenous, and Latino/a/x leaders because we have found that they are significantly underrepresented at all levels of social sector leadership and face the largest disparities in terms of funding and support in the sector today.
  • Preferred: Has a diversified revenue mix (e.g., no more than 50% of revenue base from one philanthropic donor)

*At New Profit, we define a Social Entrepreneur (often the CEO or equivalent title) as both the leader and final decision-maker of an organization's internal/external strategy, daily operations and financial decisions--outside of your board, the buck stops with you
