PropelNext works with partners that share our vision and commitment to helping nonprofits transform the lives of disadvantaged youth.

Through these partnerships we are reaching more grantees, building a vibrant community of  organizations committed to using data for learning and improvement, and strengthening the youth development field.

PropelNext’s California Partnership was initiated by five foundations – the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Sobrato Family Foundation, Weingart Foundation and the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation – and delivered the PropelNext program to 15 grantees from Southern and Northern California in the California 2018 cohort

Four of those foundations have been joined by the Heising-Simons Foundation to support the Northern California 2021 grantee cohort, a new group of nonprofits, concentrated this time on organizations serving disadvantaged youth in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The RISE Partnership (Readiness, Implementation, Sustainability for Effectiveness) is a collaboration with United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, The Scattergood Foundation and other funders designed to strengthen nonprofit organizations in the Philadelphia region.  

Our partnership with Leap of Reason supports the production of our Real World Lessons video series.
