Sector-Wide Initiatives

Even smaller funders can have a big impact by investing in projects that affect an entire sector. The Pierce Family Foundation has sought out, and in many cases help found, initiatives that address the homeless services sector, racial equity in Chicago, and nonprofit capacity. Current projects include AMPT: Advancing Nonprofits, Chicago Funders Together to End Homelessness, and the Chicago Racial Justice Pooled Fund. Past programs include Peer Skill Share, Chicago Youth Storage Initiative, and more.
