Let's build a better nonprofit sector for the goodof all
Our country is at a turning point, and so is the nonprofit sector.
The disparate economic and social fallout from COVID-19 and the widespread reckoning with racial justice have put a spotlight on many long-standing issues with philanthropy and the way nonprofits work. We cannot avoid these problems any longer.
Instead, nonprofits across the country are coming together to sign The Nonprofit Impact Pledge. As we do, we’re making a set of commitments to the people and communities we serve to create a better nonprofit sector, for the good of all. And we’re asking our funders and supporters to make a similar set of commitments alongside us.
We’ll spend 2021 more deeply exploring each one of these commitments, so that as a sector we can determine the actionable ways we will turn them from statements to reality.

Who is behind
The Nonprofit Impact Pledge?
The Nonprofit Impact Pledge was organized by Prosper Strategies in collaboration with a group of passionate, forward-thinking nonprofits who wanted to publicly double down on their commitment to create a better nonprofit sector for the good of all. As we began working on the Pledge, it became apparent that nonprofits cannot make the commitments within it alone. They need alignment from their funders, donors and supporters to make the commitments possible. We therefore collaborated with a group of funders to develop a funder version of the pledge, as well, where funders make a similar set of commitments to the nonprofits they support. Initial signers include organizations like OneGoal, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago, First Graduate, Arrowleaf, Impact America, Faith in Place, AIDS Foundation Chicago, Alleghenies Unlimited Care Providers, Inc., and Comer Education Campus.
