Hayward / San Leandro Cohort, CA
Together for 5 Years
Each Cohort lasts five years so relationships can strengthen, processes can develop, and internal structures can be built. Together, Eden Youth & Family Center, Family Resource Navigators, and Korean Community Center of the East Bay meet quarterly to present grant proposals to each other, vote on new grants, share progress updates, and seek advice on new challenges as they build capacity and grow.
The mission of Eden Youth & Family Center is to promote equitable access to coordinated services, strategic partnerships, policy, and advocacy contributing to the overall health and well-being of youth and families.
The mission of Family Resource Navigators is to make it possible for every family in Alameda County to help their children flourish – regardless of disability or special health care need.
The mission of Korean Community Center of the East Bay is to empower immigrants in the Bay Area through access to education, services, resources and advocacy.
Long-Term Community Investment
Magic Cabinet prioritizes community-born, led, and serving organizations to build their capacity and accelerate their impact. We believe if given the time, tools, and resources they ask for, the organizations and the communities they serve will flourish. Founded in 2021, this cohort will last five-years.
Capacity Building Projects Overview
An effective nonprofit is more than its programs. Each Cohort has access to $2.5m through collectively approved capacity-building grants— approximately $500k available each year. Every Cohort member faces unique challenges and opportunities for their organization; that’s why they determine how to leverage Magic Cabinet funds.
