Community Progress Makers

The Community Progress Makers initiative empowers community organizations to expand their impact through unrestricted, trust-based funding.
  • Through its Community Progress Makers initiative, the Citi Foundation supports visionary organizations that are working to connect low-income communities to greater social and economic opportunity.   

    With the support of the Citi Foundation, Community Progress Makers expand their work on affordable housing and access, economic development, financial health, and workforce readiness. The Foundation also provides a supportive community network through which these organizations can connect to learn from each other, share best practices and strengthen their roles as social change agents.   

    As part of the initiative, the Citi Foundation engages national subject matter experts and thought leaders, including long-time grantee the Urban Institute, to deliver technical assistance and capacity-building efforts that fit the cohort needs.
