Capacity Building and Technical Assistance

SeaChange Partners

The foundation is helping its grantees meet the challenges of infrastructure, board development, financing, and strategic direction through its partnership with SeaChange Capital Partners. SeaChange is a nonprofit investment bank with a mission to enable transactions that increase the impact of nonprofits while offering donors leveraged funding opportunities. 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.

The foundation has provided important support allowing SeaChange to launch the New York Merger, Acquisition, and Collaboration Fund in 2012 and the New York Pooled PRI Fund in 2014, and to build its advisory business.
