Strategic Partnerships

SeaChange Capital Partners

We have helped our grantees meet the challenges of infrastructure, board development, financing, and strategic direction through our strategic partnership with SeaChange Capital Partners, a nonprofit merchant bank. Their mission is to enable transactions that increase the impact of nonprofits while offering leveraged opportunities for funders. SeaChange engages with nonprofits that are at an inflection point in their leadership, strategy, or growth, and that seek the benefit of an independent, third-party review of their organizations with a particular focus on finance, impact, and scalability. Our support of SeaChange has allowed it to play a pivotal role in dozens of transactions spanning a range of sectors involving underserved youth and others.

Heckscher has been critical to every new initiative SeaChange has engaged in over the last seven years, both as a source of venture philanthropy and as an important co-creator in developing resources that support nonprofits serving low-income New Yorkers and their families.
