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 80% success rate in securing support from deep-vetting “signature funders” including Robin Hood, New Profit, the Emerson Collective, New Profit, and Edna McConnell Clark. Additionally, after three years with Arbor Brothers, the median grantee more than triples the number of young people they serve as well as doubles their revenue.
