Building Nonprofit Capacity

We believe increasing nonprofit capacity is the key to empowering the SELA region. 

Civic Engagement

A civically-engaged community is an empowered community. 

Data-Driven Research

Data-driven research serves as the foundation for all our programs.

Our mission is to strengthen the SELA communities, build collective power, and encourage innovation to drive regional systemic change.


Our priorities are driven by our strategic plan, the work of our members and the needs in the region.
