The Fund for Our Economic Future is not blind to the injustices repeatedly levied on black and brown people. Our communities will not thrive until we fully value and embrace the humanity and contributions of people of color. We support the continued fight for racial equity and share in the responsibility of combating racism.

OUR WORK

Two Tomorrows

Our Fund’s work is grounded in the priorities called for in The Two Tomorrows. We support integrated job creation, job preparation and job access strategies, with deliberate attention to eliminating systemic race-based inequities and the barriers to opportunity they create and exacerbate.

Job Creation

Not all jobs are good jobs. We’re working to drive long-term, sustainable economic growth.

Job Preparation

There are an abundance of job seekers and an abundance of positions going unfilled in Northeast Ohio. We’re working to close the gap.

Northeast Ohio Job Access

The vitality of Northeast Ohio’s economy depends on its ability to connect people to good jobs. We’re working to bring jobs to people and people to jobs.
