Renton / SeaTac / Tukwila #1 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, InterCultral Children & Family Services, Congolese Integration Network, and Somali Health Board meet quarterly to present grant proposals, vote on new grants, share progress updates, and seek advice on new challenges.

The mission of InterCultral Children & Family Services is to render culturally appropriate services to all children who are in the child welfare system, and their families; and to serve, within the child welfare system, as the representative of cultural and ethnic needs of African American, and other, children and families of color

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.

Capacity Building Projects Overview

An effective nonprofit is more than its programs. Each Cohort has access up 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.

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.
