"Change Capital Investments: One Tool for Moving to Abundance"

Nonprofit organizations working at the intersection of arts and social justice are no strangers to the fight to stay alive while moving their missions forward. In an honest and critical exploration of what it takes to survive against the odds, Global Action Project (G.A.P.) presents "Change Capital Investments: One Tool for Moving to Abundance." The article chronicles G.A.P.'s planning efforts, with assistance from the Nonprofit Finance Fund, to achieve sustainability on its own terms. The story offers lessons from G.A.P.'s experience using a demonstrated but uncommon tool called "change capital," and calls for a sea change in the grantee-funder dynamic by underscoring the importance of trust and mutual accountability to making sustainability attainable.

This article was made possible with generous support from the Nathan Cummings Foundation and the Cricket Island Foundation.
