Fair Chance

About Fair Chance

Fair Chance is an engine for social change. We strengthen the sustainability and performance of community-based nonprofits to achieve life-changing results for children and youth living in poverty. We select high-potential, youth-serving nonprofits in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty and provide our Fair Chance “partners” with comprehensive expertise and management assistance – at no charge. We also connect them to a network of their peers – our alumni partners – to collaborate and share resources. Our capacity building engagements result in stronger, more efficient organizations that are better positioned to provide lasting benefits for the children they serve.
