Let's Change

  • Changemaker
    One who desires change in the world and, by gathering knowledge and resources, makes that change happen. This includes non profit providers, government officials, philanthropists and volunteers.
  • Impact
    The ability to transform the experience of individuals and communities, to solve unsolvable problems, to collaboratively and intentionally move reality from today’s truth, to a more ideal state.

Everyday, Changemakers devote themselves to making positive impact.

THE CHANGE SECTOR HAS A PROBLEM

Well, actually, more than one.

The incentives are off

Non profit providers are forced to compete for funding dollars rather than collaborate effectively. To secure funding, non profits often must overstate their capacity to alone solve a complex social problem.

Changemakers work in silos

No one entity can solve for the deeply complex social challenges that confront communities today. But today, Changemakers, Government, Organizations, and Funders all work in silos.

We need gears, not widgets

We need to operate with a more complete picture of the broader landscape, and learn how all the pieces can fit together optimally to increase our capacity to drive change.

Changemakers find themselves frustrated.
In Delaware alone, we see:
