Cohort Stories & Updates

We're excited to announce Magic Cabinet's first cohorts of fiscally-sponsored organizations. Ushering in a new evolution of our grantmaking, we're eager to shift power to a new group of nonprofits to help them catalyze impact within the communities they serve.

Of the many benefits we’ve seen from our Cohort Model, there’s one unique aspect that defines its success: nonprofits resourcing each other to build stronger organizations through collaboration and connection.

Amidst a changing world, nonprofits feel the pressing need to adapt. However, within this challenge exists an opportunity to redefine their visual identity. Discover the intentional process our nonprofit partners took as they navigated change, embraced transformation, and paved the way for a fresh chapter.

Following our Community Input phase, our team dives back into research to connect with nonprofits and select organizations to fund. Our approach focuses on building more open and trusting relationships with communities.

The power of capacity-building investments can’t be understated. See how one of our nonprofit partners incorporated sabbaticals as an investment in their team and community.

Community voices shape every aspect of our work, starting with our engagement process. By prioritizing conversations with community leaders and grassroots organizations, we’re able to identify areas where our grants can make the most impact.
