NEO Philanthropy’s New Fiscally Sponsored Projects Provide Support to Headline-Making Issues

NEO Philanthropy is proud to announce nine new fiscally sponsored projects that champion hot-button issues now seizing the national discourse. From empowering women to mobilizing youth to fighting for racial equity, each project is moving social justice advocacy movements forward. The projects share NEO’s mission and values and find their nonprofit “home” when partnering with NEO.  NEO fiscal sponsored groups receive a range of services that support their work and their movements.

Supporting Women

  • Women’s March Network— The nonprofit entity, Women’s March Network, is a woman-led initiative supporting women of diverse backgrounds to create social change. With an immediate focus on nonpartisan voter registration, the organization has launched a national campaign in an effort to encourage civic participation for women of all backgrounds.
  • Women Who Dare – Studies show that women of color are less likely to run high-revenue generating businesses. This new program assists women of color entrepreneurs to scale their businesses and build profitable, sustainable companies. Women Who Dare allows participants to take part in workshops, meet with mentors and participate in an online business program to strengthen their own business and increase odds of success.

The National Guestworker Alliance (NGA) is a membership organization of guestworkers working to win collective dignity at work through labor camps across the U.S.
