New Partner Spotlight: A Wider Circle
The mission of A Wider Circle is to end poverty through on-the-ground programs and services, as well as through the development of large-scale solutions to its root causes. It’s holistic approach focuses on the creation of stable homes; workforce development programming to move families to economic self-sufficiency; neighborhood revitalization; and the creation of greater awareness and engagement by the community, as a whole. A Wider Circle has been called “the quintessential grassroots movement” and has been twice named “one of the best” by the Catalogue for Philanthropy. The organization is poised today to be a major part of the national movement to bring an end to poverty for one individual and one family after another.
With an ambitious national agenda in place and the potential for significant philanthropic growth on the horizon, Orr Group is partnering with A Wider Circle to help leverage this opportunity to accelerate fundraising. Our team of experienced fundraisers is providing a surge of “back-office” development support, specifically focusing on building a foundation pipeline by systematically identifying, evaluating and prioritizing potential institutional opportunities.
This engagement will allow A Wider Circle’s team to be most effective on the frontlines and we look forward to continuing to help the organization achieve its philanthropic ambitions.
