Strategic Partnerships

Arbor Brothers

Our strategic partnership with Arbor Brothers has connected 26 non-profits in New York City with hands-on consulting services. Arbor Brothers identifies, funds, and assists promising education and workforce development nonprofits in the New York metro area, and assists in the creation of management tools and strategic plans. Arbor Brothers selects a cohort of the most promising second-stage nonprofits each year that address root causes of poverty. Each grantee in their portfolio receives over 250 hours of engagement on their model and program strategies. Over the last five years, Arbor Brothers grantees have had an 83% success rate securing support from other funders, including the Robin Hood Foundation, New Profit, and the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation. Additionally, the median Arbor Brothers client has more than doubled the number of young people it serves, as well as its revenue.
