“For almost ten years, The Columbus Foundation‘s 5 Nonprofits to Watch platform has been honored to amplify the mission of nonprofit organizations that embody the pulse and essence of Columbus,” said Danielle Tong, Director, Capacity Building & Community Knowledge at The Columbus Foundation. “In recent years, the Foundation’s intentional focus on elevating smaller, lesser known organizations brings with it the acknowledgement of the tremendous value that small nonprofits bring to our city.”
This year’s 5 Nonprofits to Watch are: Black Girl Rising, Inc., Elevate Northland, Form5 Prosthetics, Remember Us Urban Scouts, and Riverview International Center.
Black Girl Rising, Inc. offers Black girls in central Ohio an opportunity to use their voice and lived experiences to identify issues and concerns that impact their mental and emotional health and create best practices for addressing those issues.

The work of their Black Girl Think Tank provides girls with leadership skills to dialogue across barriers, think critically, and build community with girls regardless of social, economic, or educational backgrounds.
