Acumen Fund Chapters are an integral part of efforts to increase awareness, excitement, and membership in Acumen’s community of supporters and advocates – from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands and someday millions of people – who believe that the model of patient capital has a central role to play in the global fight against poverty.
A Chapter is essentially an Acumen Fund volunteer/interest group – a group of like-minded individuals who share a passion for and interest in Acumen Fund’s work. The goals of a Chapter are to:
- Champion patient capital as an effective complement to traditional aid
- Serve as a key fundraising and communications resource for Acumen Fund
- Deliver on these objectives in a way that is consistent with Acumen Fund’s brand and values
