Changing the status quo, together.
The Contingent is a venture nonprofit that empowers leaders and mobilizes community to tackle many of the largest injustices and vulnerabilities in our country. Through marketing, technology, research, and thoughtful customer experience, we inspire those who want to get involved and do good in their communities. Sweeping transformation in contingent on developing new approaches for linking arms and stepping into brokenness – together.
A group of people trained for action.
Lasting change comes when community rises and works together. The Contingent is the spark, inspiring and training neighbors to help neighbors. At a time when the status quo is a divided society, The Contingent becomes an enduring and essential group of people standing in the gap and creating new leaders to confront the challenges ahead.
What world can we build, what problems can we solve, when we work together?
We see needs and we fill them. The Contingent serves children and families impacted by foster care and empowers diverse talent to excel as young professionals. We succeed in this through our initiatives: Every Child, Survival is Not Enough (SINE), Emerging Leaders, and Ready to Rise, and our Scholarships: Act Six and Ignite.
