Equity Amplifier Directory
A searchable directory highlighting AFN member grantees focused on building economic security/asset building in communities of color.
What is equity amplifier?
Equity Amplifier is designed to build upon the various components of the Realizing Economic Justice platform. AFN members receive the opportunity to elevate local, grassroots organizations and small community based nonprofits that are often overlooked and as a result, underfunded. The Equity Amplifier profiles and directory are meant to serve as an actionable step for funders to develop partnerships that yield lasting results in the asset building space.
How Can Funders Get Involved?
AFN members may nominate local grassroots organizations and small community based nonprofits focused on building economic security/asset building in communities of color. Selected organizations will receive a customized profile that will be shared with national AFN membership, allowing funders and nonprofits to showcase innovative models and best practices to help build a more secure future for diverse communities.

Considerations for Eligible Organizations
Organizations and nonprofits must meet following criteria to be highlighted as part of the EA spotlight series:
Organizations must be recommended by an AFN member in good standing who is currently or has previously provided funding to the project or organization.
Organizations must be majority Persons of Color (POC)-led based on the following definitions: 51% or more of staff leadership, board, and/or governing body are POC.
Organizations should be able to demonstrate established relationships and have a good track record of working on activities that impact POC communities.
Strong preference will be given to local, grassroots organizations and small community based nonprofits whose issue areas align with at least one of AFN’s issue domains, with a clear preference for projects/efforts that have a clear tie back to AFN regional geographies.
Nonprofit organizations will also receive the opportunity to have their profile highlighted with national AFN membership through various social media platforms, which provides an opportunity to showcase innovative models across our AFN regions and best practices to help build a more secure future for diverse communities.
