ProInspire’s mission is to activate leaders at all levels to accelerate equity at the individual, organizational, and systems levels. Rooted in the belief that leadership and equity are key to the systems change needed to maximize social impact, we design and deliver cohort programs, fellowships, workshops, coaching, research, and convenings. Our goal is for individuals at all levels in the social sector to have the competencies, confidence, and connections to accelerate equity and leadership.

Founded in 2009 and based in Washington, D.C., ProInspire runs programs in multiple cities across the United States. We partner with leading local, national, and international nonprofits, including Accion, Communities in Schools, Community Housing Partnership, Share Our Strength, and more. ProInspire’s funders include Annie E. Casey Foundation, American Express, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Borealis Philanthropy, Hewlett Foundation, and Kresge Foundation. ProInspire was named by the Chronicle of Philanthropy as one of 7 Nonprofits to Watch in 2015, and as a Top-Rated Nonprofit from 2015 to 2018.

Why should you invest in ProInspire?

ProInspire envisions an equitable and just society — free of systemic oppression, where all people thrive. Now more than ever, it’s imperative that we create a world where outcomes are not identity-dependent. By investing in ProInspire, you play a role in achieving this vision by  activating leaders and accelerating equity. 

It takes courage to make equity a non-negotiable core value of your work. ProInspire’s program participants, partners, and supporters lead with courage every day as they confront both the challenge their organization seeks to address, and the equity issues that underlie it.  Give today and help us fuel the courage! Every dollar you donate will contribute to our mission to activate leaders and accelerate equity, so that more  social sector leaders have the competencies, confidence, and connections to do this work. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and your contribution is fully tax deductible. We need to raise $40,0000  to support our mission and achieve our 2019 goals. Every gift directly supports our work to activate leaders and accelerate equity! Thank you for partnering with us to #LeadWithCourage.
