The national voice and catalyst for the field of nonprofit capacity building
What is “community”?
People, place, and purpose aligned toward a common goal
We’ve forged robust partnerships with forward-thinking leaders throughout Southern California (and beyond). Our work with diverse funders, business leaders, and nonprofit professionals translates into meaningful experience to support you and your cause.
From DTLA to the OC, we’re committed to creating a better Southern California. We understand the issues facing our neighbors and neighborhoods—from homelessness and housing insecurity, to our LA River and local watershed, to education and workforce development.
Blue Garnet’s role is to walk alongside leaders who are facing an inflection point. We are here to help advance your social impact vision, bringing you the knowledge you need to make decisions and move the work forward.
