This Cohort lasts four years so relationships can strengthen, processes can develop, and internal structures can be built. Together, A Place-2-Live, Rio Vista CARE, and Solano Advocates for Victims of Violence meet quarterly to present grant proposals to each other, vote on new grants, share progress updates, and seek advice on new challenges as they build capacity and grow.
Magic Cabinet prioritizes community-born, led, and serving organizations to build their capacity and accelerate their impact. We believe if given the time, tools, and resources they ask for, the organizations and the communities they serve will flourish. Founded in 2022, this cohort will last five years.
An effective nonprofit is more than its programs. This Cohort has access to $1.2m through collectively approved capacity-building grants— approximately $300k available each year. Every Cohort member faces unique challenges and opportunities for their organization; that’s why they determine how to leverage Magic Cabinet funds.
