The Mission of ABD Ventures
Building Effective Social Change Organizations
Whether working as individuals, institutions or as a coalition, ABD Ventures helps social change agents envision the future and develop the tools and strategies for getting there.-
The increasingly dire need for effective organizations to address social problems is complicated by an ever-tightening economy. Limited resources make creativity and innovation even more essential for achieving results.
Social change agents looking to build their advocacy, organizing and political capacity can turn to ABD Ventures. We can provide the vision, strategies and tools to create a more effective internal operation and to form robust external partnerships through coalition-building that delivers long-term results.
ABD can work collaboratively with a wide range of non-profit, political and labor organizations to dramatically improve their ability to think strategically and act effectively as individuals and in concert with partners to achieve their missions.
