Who’s involved in Stand Together?
We are incredibly fortunate to work with people all across the country who are committed to helping others improve their lives. And this is really at the core of Stand Together’s effectiveness.
Just to give you a sense of some of the organizations within our philanthropic community and who we work with:
- The Charles Koch Foundation alongside hundreds of people within our philanthropic community support tens of thousands of K-12 teachers in public and private schools, more than 1,000 professors at 300 universities, educators in the skilled trades, and pioneers who are finding new ways to help students discover, develop, and apply their unique potential.
Renate Matthews is one of those public-school teachers. She’s part of group called Youth Entrepreneurs that Stand Together has helped grow from three to 29 states since 2016.
- We partner with more than 700 of the country’s most successful business leaders and philanthropists who combined employ more than 2 million people. Together, we support efforts for business to play a greater role in tackling our country’s challenges.
As just one example, check out how a business supported by Stand Together partner Trust Ventures is leveraging 3D-printing technology to help address homelessness in Austin, Texas.
- Stand Together Foundation partners with the leaders of about 180 community-based organizations who have developed innovative ways to address the root causes of poverty. We’re now on pace to partner with more than 50 new groups per year, going forward.
Check out how we’ve joined with Chad Houser and Café Momentum to show the country a better way to help kids exiting the juvenile justice system (you might have seen where they were featured at the Super Bowl this year).
- Americans for Prosperity is the organization we rely on to improve public policy. It supports grassroots activists in all 50 states and from all walks of life, helping elevate the voices of people who are showing a better way for public policy — one that unites people to help one another rather than divides society along political lines.
One of those activists is William Burt. See how Americans for Prosperity helped William to pass public policy that enables people to realize their dreams of running their own businesses.
