One Community at a Time

Seeing Communities Flourish

At the Resurgence Leadership Foundation, we envision a world that is a just society where everyone and everything will be treated with dignity, respect & care.

“Old men and old women will come back to Jerusalem, sit on benches on the streets and spin tales, move around safely with their canes—a good city to grow old in. And boys and girls will fill the public parks, laughing and playing—a good city to grow up in.”

Our Mission

We propel communities by investing in leaders.

We provide training, advisors, resources, and financial support to those leaders so
communities can flourish.

People from different backgrounds, faith traditions, and sectors of the city.

Like Rachel, Karl, David and Oliver…

Building the capacity of others

We move under-resourced work to empowered action. Since 2009, Resurgence Leadership Foundation has helped build the capacity of more than 100 nonprofit leaders.

Through the Youth Mentoring Collaborative, in 2020 alone we trained over 100 mentors to better serve the youth within communities across the United States.

Developing Joint Initiatives

We move independent efforts to collective impact. It will take all of us to address the most significant challenges that our communities faces.

Resurgence Leadership Foundation is bringing together experienced leaders, passionate local advocates, and community stakeholders to tackle these challenges head on!
