Advancing Compassion Project (ACP) is a California-based nonprofit that supports innovation within existing community-based organizations addressing human, societal or environmental challenges. Applying principles that foundations use to catalyze change, ACP mobilizes financial, technical and other resources to help selected programs demonstrate improved social benefit. ACP’s approach recognizes that donors are more willing to support charitable programs when they can see that their contributions have a concrete impact in solving problems rather than chronically managing ongoing needs.
Our efforts and those of our volunteers and supporters are focused on improving lives affected by disease or disability; poverty, homelessness or discrimination; or environmental deprivation. Through service projects, donations and other forms of direct and indirect support, we help to foster and enhance innovative programs designed to promote positive changes within existing organizations.
