Nonprofit, government, business, philanthropy, and community leaders need to work across organizational and sector boundaries in order to develop systemic solutions to address our most pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges.

Since 2005, csb philanthropic solutions has worked across sectors to align resources, strategies, and policies to advance racial equity and economic opportunity.


We focus on identifying, funding, and strengthening collaborative initiatives seeking to improve outcomes for low-income communities and communities of color.  We develop grantmaking initiatives, facilitate learning communities, and support cross-sector partnerships.
