JEI is grateful to the following organizations that support our work and fellowships.
Kataly moves resources to support the economic, political, and cultural power of Black & Indigenous communities, & all communities of color. The Kataly team is working toward a world in which Black and brown people have the resources, power, and agency to execute their own visions for justice, well-being, and shared prosperity within their communities.
Founded in 1992, the Heron Foundation strives to fuel the agency of others using the principles of servant leadership. Today, Heron pursues its mission to help people and communities help themselves by championing the people, places, and enterprises that challenge broken conventions and dare to change. Working on the ground in communities and within the capital markets, the foundation seeks to operate at the intersection of communities and capital. Heron is also a learning organization that seeks to continuously learn from missteps and successes, ever evolving to optimize their work with communities, capital deployment decisions, and investment portfolio for mission.
The #NoRegrets Initiative (NRI) is a relationship-centered approach to land and asset management. The NRI team envisions a world in which all agricultural ecosystems are managed for health, diversity and long-term sustainability. Their mission is to improve soil health and grow soil carbon in the agricultural soils of North America. To those ends, they demonstrate and advocate for a Regenerative Assets Strategy that deploys human, ecological and financial capital toward soil health and its effect on climate change.
Possibility Labs’ mission is to accelerate and empower community-driven solutions that are built, led, and governed by and for low-income and BIPOC communities, by providing the essential financial and legal infrastructure to manage and move integrated capital to BIPOC-led movement groups. The Possibility Labs team aims to advance racial, gender, and climate justice, and a new economy where everyone thrives.
The Just Economy Institute is a fiscally sponsored project of Possibility Labs.
