From what I’ve seen, the non-profits that work at the community level often have the most impact. They may be smaller, but they’re in touch with the most pressing needs and able to react quickly to them. A great model for big non-profits might be to work through smaller non-profits. In fact, that’s exactly what Local Initiatives Support Corporation does. They are a New York, NY based organization that “has connected local organizations and community leaders with resources to revitalize neighborhoods and improve quality of life” over the last three and a half decades. They do this by bringing together public and private resources and making it easy for partners to access them.
Local Initiatives Support Corporation was founded in 1979 by the Ford Foundation. Their mission is to help people “transform distressed neighborhoods into healthy and sustainable communities of choice and opportunity — good places to work, do business and raise children.” They do this by focusing on five goals: expanding investment in housing and other real estate, increasing family income and wealth, stimulating economic development, improving acces to quality education, and supporting healthy environment and lifestyles.
