Soulciety receives $300k from the Thomas J. Long Foundation!

Soulciety receives $300k from the Thomas J. Long Foundation!

Last year, Soulciety received a phone call from program officers at the Thomas J. Long Foundation. They wanted to schedule a meeting to learn about our services. It turned out to be an amazing meeting, and a few months later, we received another phone call. One of the program officers informed us that the foundation was giving Soulciety a $300,000 capacity-building grant! To say the least, we were in shock.

Fast forward nine months later and we’re seeing how this grant has been a game changer for us. Here is how these funds have helped Soulciety to grow:

Restructured the staff to better streamline processes and to be more efficient with our programming.
Developed a management team consisting of a youth services manager, young adult services manager, and contracts administrative manager.
Recruited and trained board of directors in governance.
Hired consultants/contractors for finance, fund development, accounting, human resources, and an organizational coach.

We are also currently working with our management team, board of directors, and consultants to develop a strategic plan for Soulciety’s near future. It’s incredible to see how hard work and determination can bring about so many opportunities.

We are very thankful to the Thomas J. Long Foundation for believing in our work and for investing in our community.
