Positioning nonprofits to grow and thrive

Over 350 organizations have turned to Fairmount to answer the questions that keep them up at night. Lucky for everyone, they’re the same questions that get us out of bed every morning. Since 1992, we’ve offered planning, implementation and coaching services to help nonprofit, philanthropic, and public agencies advance through key transition points in their organizational development. We’ve helped our clients secure over $600,000,000 in new funding, distinguish themselves in a cluttered marketplace, and build leadership, program and resource capacity to realize their goals…and get a good night’s sleep.

What’s Your Big Idea?

For Drexel University and the City of Philadelphia, it’s the idea that promise grows.

In 2013, Fairmount Ventures helped both to pen the country’s top application, securing West Philadelphia’s distinction as a Promise Zone. In 2016, we built on that success, and once again elicited a top score to earn a U.S. Department of Education $30 million Promise Neighborhood grant for West Philadelphia.

The real promise? Delivering sustainable educational supports and community-based services to meet the complex needs of children and families in neighborhoods of great need.
