Catapult, our longest-running program, is an investment of capacity building support to help create mighty changes inside the “Investee” nonprofits with which we work. The investment is determined by the needs of the selected nonprofit. Our support can consist of cash grants, consulting, training, resources, and more.

Since 2001, dozens of nonprofit organizations have completed our Catapult program. The engagements have lasted from 1-5 years and have consisted of countless volunteer consulting hours and $1.7 million in cash grants. In 2022 we shifted our investment focus to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) led organizations who also serve those communities. We will be adding additional focus areas annually to support those organizations and communities who are traditionally underfunded.
