The Advancement Foundation
Last updated on June 21, 2017

Our mission is to eliminate poverty. We do this by helping nonprofits transform the world through innovative strategies to improve their resources and maximize their strategic impact. The Foundation leverages all community resources for the benefit of large scale impact. The Foundation coordinates comprehensive efforts of business leaders, nonprofit directors, boards, civic organizations, churches, the poor and the entire community. Additionally, the Foundation provides direct programming for the poor to learn business skills and confidence while ensuring the actively contribute back to the community – including providing volunteer support back to the nonprofits that serve to support them.

Strategic Support of Nonprofits:
The Advancement Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, provides two primary functions to advance the lives of underprivileged citizens in the Roanoke Valley. First, the Foundation provides strategic planning, fundraising and board development for valuable health and human service organizations so that they are able to continue their critical work in the Valley. The Foundation does this by working with directors and board members to focus on building capacity and encouraging partnerships across organizations.

Action Oriented Programming for Nonprofits and Individuals:
The Foundation also works to provide long lasting social change for citizens by providing programming that allows citizen experiencing chronic poverty to create and execute a comprehensive life plan. We partner with East Mental Health to help build sustainable change in the lives of our LEAP program participants.

Unique Approach to Develop Nonprofit Sustainability and Break the Cycle of Poverty:
The Advancement Foundation works to lead community wide social change by improving the lives of the underprivileged. The Foundation accomplishes this work by: first, helping create sustainability for local health and human service nonprofits; and, secondly through the LEAP Program, which assists the underprivileged in developing and executing a life improvement plan. We do this through individual service, non-profit and and for-profit partnerships.
