“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.
Through mentorship, in-school, afterschool, and summer programs, Remember Us Urban Scouts creates a safe space for youth to naturally develop. Its mission is to equip youth with the skills and social capital needed to be successful in school, work, and their personal lives. The organization also provides monthly community engagement via parent night, youth night, and community bike rides. Remember Us Urban Scouts seeks to empower youth to create generational wealth, break cycles of poverty for their families and communities, and bring about positive change in their communities.
