What We Do

The EGF Accelerator is a long-term residential incubator supporting select nonprofits working to improve educational equity in the New York area.

We provide a home…

because everyone needs a place to live.

We provide organizations in the EGF Accelerator with office space, meeting rooms and common spaces to break bread, collaborate and connect — rent free! That’s a big relief since nonprofit organizations often struggle to get a toehold in our expensive city. Nonprofits usually reside in the EGF Accelerator for between three and five years.

COVID-19 Update: We are keeping connected, supporting leaders and staff and, most importantly, are committed to being nimble and responsive as we help partner organizations stabilize and thrive.

We provide support…

because everyone needs help to get stronger.

We provide Accelerator organizations with ongoing, highly personalized coaching and carefully tailored management consulting as well as an array of experts in everything from accounting, legal services, board development, fundraising, talent acquisition and retention, organizational development, communications strategy, and measurement and evaluation.

We provide a network…

because no one goes it alone.

It is all about community, whether we are face-to-face or remote.  Every day, being part of the Accelerator links you to other smart and innovative folks. We are committed to creating connections, helping organizations identify a nonprofit community they can rely on, and helping them cultivate a network of supporters, funders, fellow travelers and fans to fuel their growth.
