Innovation in Philanthropy & Education

Our Commitment in Action

The CAFE Group focuses on three areas: influencing the social and financial capital landscape, opening doors to new opportunities for education innovators, and nurturing the next generation of philanthropic professionals.  Check out our programs to learn how!


The 1954 Project identifies established Black leaders of nonprofit organizations in the education sector and selects at least five Luminaries each year. The Luminaries receive transformational $1 million grants along with professional support and membership in an unparalleled community of their peers.
