Next Street brings the same level of expertise to the nonprofit world that the elite consulting firms and investment banks provide to FORTUNE 500 companies.
Next Street’s holistic approach to economic transformation combines a strategic view of urban best practices with daily street-level experience. The clients we serve are overwhelmingly in low-income and minority communities. And overwhelmingly successful.
Success isn’t simple. We maintain close working ties with elected officials and public agencies, as well as leading thinkers at the Brookings Institution, the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, and the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs at Northeastern University.
We are active participants in dozens of redevelopment projects each year, the transactions that transform communities by creating opportunities for residents.
Next Street helps foundation principals:
Shape initiatives that attract more private partners and public-sector support
Identify opportunities for impact investing that marry fiduciary duty with the organization’s social mission
Amplify the impact of the service providers they fund
Expand the capacity of the women- and minority-owned businesses they buy from
Large nonprofits are “big business” in terms of the products and services they buy. Simply by directing more purchases to local businesses in low-income areas, they can create opportunity that wasn’t there before – and often reduce their costs. Next Street can show you how.
