Announcing the PropelNext California Partnership

Weingart Foundation has joined forces with four other foundations—the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and the Sobrato Family Foundation—to pilot the PropelNext California Partnership. The goal of this new partnership is to help youth-serving organizations boost their impact on the lives of disadvantaged young people.

PropelNext, a national initiative of the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, was developed in 2012 to help leading nonprofits gain the skills to collect, use and apply data for ongoing improvement and learning. In 2015, the PropelNext California Partnership will deliver the PropelNext program to 12-16 nonprofits in California that are interested in transforming their passion for supporting youth into data-driven insights and practices, and help them achieve even stronger results. Due to the limited scope of the pilot, applications will be by invitation only. For more information on the PropelNext California Partnership, click here.
