New Profit's 2015-2016 Annual Report

Posted by Admin on Dec 28, 2016 3:23:15 PM


Our 2015-2016 Annual Report is being published at a time of widespread uncertainty and anxiety, but the message we want to send to our community  is about action. All of us - from social entrepreneurs to philanthropists, policy advocates, researchers, private sector leaders, and community partners - have a critical role and responsibility to push even harder to maintain the social problem solving momentum we have created together. As we do so, we have to also widen our frame of reference about our mission of breaking down barriers to opportunity in America.

The Pathways Fund Helped Nearly 200K Students Get to and Through College. Here’s How.

Posted by Admin on Dec 13, 2016 11:41:09 AM


The story of the Pathways Fund, which is sunsetting this year, is an extraordinarily important one for the New Profit community. Together with our amazing partners (see above graphic) we built Pathways and helped catalyze the new and growing college-to-career success field, achieving large-scale results for young people from under-resourced communities and creating a learning lab for a collaborative, multi-faceted approach that is crucial to social problem solving. Everything we are doing today at New Profit to break down systemic barriers to opportunity in America is informed by the lessons we learned from Pathways. Over the next few weeks, we are going to be rolling out the story of Pathways, highlighting the amazing organizations that were a part of it, and sharing lessons learned from the whole initiative.
