The Magic Cabinet Cohorts
At Magic Cabinet, we support the whole nonprofit, not just its programs. By focusing on long-term grants on capacity building we enable community-led and focused nonprofits to grow their impact while fulfilling their mission faster.

The Magic Cabinet Cohort is made of 5 voting members: a leader from each of the 3 benefiting nonprofits, a Magic Cabinet program officer and an independent advisor from the community.
Present & Approves Grants
The benefiting nonprofit Cohort members present their grant proposals to the Cohort, and their peers approve or offer feedback on how to make the grant stronger.
Together for 5 Years
Cohorts meet quarterly for grant proposal presentations, to vote on new grants, share progress updates, and to seek advice on new challenges.
Access to a Pool of Funds
Magic Cabinet distributes $2.5m to the benefiting nonprofits through Cohort approved grants— approximately $500k available each year with unused funding rolling over to the next year.
