Multiplier Effect
The Multiplier effect: building progressive power

When we start by growing financial capacity, it multiplies our efforts into widespread, meaningful change.

Multiplier Effect

Here’s how the Multiplier Effect works:

We find and fund scalable, repeatable independent revenue generation methods, and we share them far through our online Center of Excellence.  Some of that funding is done through Recoverable Grants that get paid back and regranted to expand the grantee pool faster.

These revenue generation methods drive people and their dollars to progressive nonprofits. Progressive organizations grow stronger and can achieve more of their mission.

In parallel, we work with partners in philanthropy to develop financing models that build scalable, sustainable progressive power.  

Now, we’ve grown movement capacity: we have people and groups in position to act on ambitious, intersectional plans.

This ultimately affects broad, system-wide change—it’s how we move mountains.

“Small dollar fundraising is a critical part of building a progressive movement of, by, and for everyday people and Progressive Multiplier is indispensable in this effort.”
