We empower social entrepreneurs and enhance nonprofi t excellence. Each year, the Impact Accelerator chooses a cohort of passionate startup nonprofi t leaders making a difference in the community. These nonprofi t founders learn to grow their organizations effi ciently and sustainably through education, mentorship, collaboration, and grants.
Over the past four years, we’ve gained invaluable insights from mentoring a select annual cohort of organizations. Now, we’re combining this experience with our robust network of OU lay leaders, seasoned community leaders, mentors, and nonprofi t professionals in addition to our annual cohort. The result? We’re set to become a data-driven resource for the broader Jewish nonprofi t sector. This strategic shift allows us to amplify our impact and more effectively support a wider array of leaders committed to positive change.
“THE OU IMPACT ACCELERATOR WAS TRANSFORMATIONAL FOR ME PERSONALLY AND FOR GROWTORAH AS AN ORGANIZATION. IT TAUGHT ME THE FUNDAMENTALS OF NONPROFIT MANAGEMENT, FROM FUNDRAISING TO BUSINESS PLANS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. IT SET US ON A GROWTH TRAJECTORY THAT WE HAD ONLY DREAMED OF BEFORE PARTICIPATING."
