Coordinator, GreenLight Fund (Multiple Sites)
GreenLight Fund is a national nonprofit with a local focus that partners with communities to create opportunities for inclusive prosperity.
Each year we facilitate a community-driven process that matches the local needs of individuals and families not met by existing programs, to organizations with track records of success elsewhere. Working with communities, we identify, invite in and launch proven organizations, providing collaborative support so they can quickly take root and deliver change.
Everything we do is designed to remove barriers to inclusive prosperity all too often rooted in racial inequities. Our impact increases exponentially as we address one specific, community-identified need each year, in each GreenLight site.
Since 2004, we have launched 44 portfolio organizations across eleven sites, invested $30.5M, and attracted an additional $206M from other funding sources, reaching more than 550,000 individuals and families last year alone.

GreenLight Fund Twin Cities Overview
GreenLight Fund launched in the Twin Cities in 2020 - in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. At a time when the racial disparities that exist locally were exacerbated by the global pandemic and continued violence against Black and Brown bodies, GreenLight Fund Twin Cities made the decision to prioritize organizations that focused on collaboratively creating opportunities for inclusive prosperity within Black communities. In 2022, we brought in Let Everyone Advance with Dignity, a public health approach to community safety, designed to provide intensive, holistic care to individuals cycling in and out of the legal system. To add to our portfolio, we are currently focusing on Black and Indigenous Maternal Health as well as Mental Health for Black and Brown youth. Our goal is to remove barriers within these communities, because when Black and Brown communities succeed, we all do.
GreenLight Fund Kansas City Overview
GreenLight Fund launched in Kansas City in 2018, a vibrant community with a strong philanthropic spirit and a willingness to innovate, but also a community where ongoing and systemic racism have not created equal opportunities for Black and Brown residents and families to thrive. Responding to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, GreenLight Fund Kansas City has made investments in youth mental health - the Becoming a Man and Working on Womanhood school based counseling programs, and child care - a collaboration between national leader in family child care, All Our Kin, and Kansas City early education leader, The Family Conservancy.
