Organization Overview

At Common Future, we imagine a future where people, no matter their race or ethnicity, have power, choice, and ownership over the economy. Founded in 2001, we know that the ideas, models, and solutions that can restore community wealth already exist, they just require attention and investment. We work with hundreds of community leaders and funders through flexible initiatives that build inclusive economies. These initiatives are centered around shifting capital, uplifting local leaders, and advising the development of equitable economies. We are a 22 person organization (and growing). Our culture values equity, experimentation, continuous learning, collaboration, trust, and the wellbeing of our employees. Read more about us on our Medium page.
