Rainer Valley Cohort, WA
Together for 5 Years
Each Cohort lasts five years so relationships can strengthen, processes can develop, and internal structures can be built. Together, Community Passageways, EACS, and SESEC 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 Community Passageways is to create alternatives to incarceration for youth and young adults by rebuilding our communities through committed relationships centered on love, compassion, and consistency.
The mission of EACS is to inspire East African immigrant and refugee families to achieve cradle to career success.
The mission of SESEC is to rally communities of color and allies to improve Southeast Seattle schools so all students succeed and all families are empowered.
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 2020, 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.
