UpTogether is a national anti-poverty nonprofit that highlights, accelerates and invests in the initiative people in financially under-resourced communities are taking to improve their lives and move up, together.
Through our signature online platform, the UpTogether Community, individuals and families can exchange resources, strengthen their social networks, and access unrestricted capital, so they, their friends, family, and neighbors can support each other while reaching their financial and personal goals. Together, with our partners, we are championing a community-led movement to boost long-term economic and social mobility in communities that have been undervalued and under-served for far too long.
At our core, we believe every person is an expert in their own life, and we work toward our vision that every person in the United States is recognized for their strengths and contributions and appropriately resourced with the capital they need to thrive.
Our strength-based approach acknowledges where the power and solutions really are: in the hands of hardworking people, families and communities. Our unique approach removes the limits of deficit-based ideals, and fosters a nationwide movement where all people are valued through community, impact, collaboration, racial equity, leadership, and choice.
We recognize, highlight and invest in the ingenuity and entrepreneurship of people in historically undervalued communities and partner with government and philanthropy to do the same.
All people in the United States are seen and invested in for their strengths and are able to build their social and financial assets.
