People are every community’s greatest asset.

At Momentum, we believe that poor engagement, lack of inclusive environments,
and misunderstanding one’s abilities stands in the way of good work.

Our Work

We help organizations, institutions, and individuals across the country better understand themselves, connect for shared purpose, and develop new systems. By working alongside staff and other community contributors, bringing together a community’s best minds and conducting intensive learning labs, we develop whole people for greater impact.


Momentum provides nonprofits, foundations, and other initiatives seeking social change with the tools and resources they need to ignite the heart of their work, the community. We believe in holistic community engagement that not only focuses on getting the right donors and sharing your message, but one that looks at strategic volunteer engagement, on the ground implementation (without committees), and managing your work with equity at top of mind.
