We are an unconventional nonprofit organization. Where many organizations in the nonprofit space are issue oriented,  The Swell Collective is relationship & process oriented. Our work applies across all issues and builds capacity for impact. 

how we serve


We center our work on the intersectional needs & strengths of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and other People of Color) and other systemically oppressed communities. We focus on themes of ethical collaboration, effective communication, and resiliency & wellness. Anti-racism and equity principles are built into everything we do. Diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives are not “side projects”. They should form the foundational scaffolds of any organization seeking to move in community organizing and social enterprise spaces. Member by member, organization by organization, and interaction by interaction, Swell Collective dismantles oppression from the ground up, and from the inside out.
