SeaChange helps nonprofits work through complex financial and organizational challenges.Contact Us
Nonprofits are critical, yet the deck is stacked against them—they’re under-resourced and have inadequate outside support. We use our experience, financial resources and connections to help nonprofits navigate complex challenges. We create new ways for funders to support them. Together with our nonprofit and funder partners, we relentlessly fight for a healthier and more just society.Learn more >
SeaChange uses a variety of tools to help nonprofits address complex challenges. These include grants, loans, consulting, referrals, and the insights we’ve gained doing the work.
We make grants to help nonprofits explore or implement mergers, joint-ventures, programmatic alliances and other types of formal, long-term and sustainable collaborations.
We make flexible, high-impact loans to support the real estate, working capital and expansion capital needs of nonprofits working in New York City.
Our consulting work includes financial analysis, fund design, facilitation, and assisting with spin-outs, divestments, organizational restructurings (including bankruptcy) and dissolutions.
