There’s a place for everyone in the 50CAN network.

We love individual donors and nothing makes us more proud than when a fellow advocate chooses to support our work.

Speak to our staff

We are always looking to learn from others in the field. If you are willing to share your hard-earned wisdom, we have a ready audience.

Join a network gathering.

A few times a year we bring the whole network together to share what we are learning. We are always happy to have partners sit in on these off-the-record gatherings. Send us an email and let us know if you’d like to be added to the invitation list.



Partner on the big bets.

Like what you are hearing about the four big bets of more people, greater opportunities, smarter goals and better tools? Great! We would love to share our latest project plans in each area and talk about how we might work together to make these ideas a reality.

Join the network.

Interested in a deeper collaboration? Let’s talk about what it could mean to bring your organization into the 50CAN network as a campaign branch, affiliate or independent partner.



Take action as a Funders

Let’s talk.

Strategic plans are exciting, but we have more to share and are eager to hear about your plans. Let’s start the conversation with a phone call or coffee. Email us at to set up a time.

Visit a campaign.

There is nothing like seeing the work in action. We can help arrange a visit to the campaign of your choice at a time that works for you.



Support a big bet.

If one or more of 50CAN’s big bets aligns with your philanthropic goals or sounds like the kind of idea you want to help become a reality, let us know and we can share more detailed project plans with you.

Support the network.

None of this is possible without the general operating support that our most committed supporters provide to power the whole network. We would love to share more about how important your support can be in advancing our mission. If you’d like to make a gift to 50CAN, reach out to Vice President of Development Cari Isham.
