Change Capital Fund is working in partnership with New York City government to help grantees implement their initiatives and to advance public policies and practices related to neighborhood-level anti-poverty efforts.

Kate Dempsey, Director of Strategy & Operations for the NYC Center for Economic Opportunity (CEO), is an ex officio member of the donor collaborative and is working with CCF to provide grantees with access to city agencies and data. CEO is especially interested in CCF’s evidence-based approach that has an impact beyond the individual served.

“Having worked with CCF and its grantees over the past year, I believe we’ll not only see the grantees efforts literally pay off by moving individuals and communities up the economic ladder, but we’ll also see the kinds of evidence-based solutions that the administration can further in other places. What else can we ask for in a partnership!,” says Kate Dempsey.
