Our Story

Our Vision

A diverse network of mission-driven nonprofits building a healthy, vibrant, and more just community

Our Mission

Fueling the impact and effectiveness of nonprofits with guidance, expertise, and capital

Guiding Principles

Part of our Theory of Change is that when nonprofits are well-led, well-resourced, and well-connected they achieve mission success. As we work toward our mission of fueling the impact and effectiveness of nonprofits with guidance, expertise, and capital, we use these principles as a strategy screen, as accountability markers, and as a handshake, whether you’re new through our door or an old Propel friend.

Our Strategic Framework

The downloadable document presents a strategic framework for Propel Nonprofits, weaving together mission, vision, values, strategic priorities, and organizational culture work completed during 2020 by the Board of Directors and Propel staff.

As noted in the document, the framework is designed to be adaptive and responsive. As a staff and board, we chose to develop a truly high-level Strategic Framework as a guiding document for the next several years.
