New Sun Rising provides strategic programs, vital services, and accessible funding to power civic innovation from idea to impact.
Although social and economic inequities persisted prior to COVID-19, the extent of these differences and their impact on the quality of life of vulnerable populations has been elevated during the pandemic. Nonprofits and small businesses continue to operate on the front line of these challenges. Not only are they expected to meet the urgent, critical needs of their community – but they also must consider their role in developing a more just, equitable future.
New Sun Rising believes that equity and vibrancy in our ecosystems is best achieved through a triple-bottom line approach to community economic development: Strengthening Culture, Promoting Environmental Sustainability, and Creating Economic Opportunity. By utilizing our strengths in capacity building and providing accessible funding, New Sun Rising can help organizations, collaboratives, communities, and philanthropic partners to develop resilience and organize during this time of transition.
