Fishing Differently Ecosystem

Oikos Institute for Social Impact will connect faith-inspired leaders and place-based investors to help anchor institutions, such as faith communities and BIPOC organizations, harness the power of their assets for communal transformation and economic mobility. Our asset-based approach to community development aims to accelerate the relief of distressed communities; alleviate human suffering; maximize human capital; and solve social problems.

Distressed Communities

Those experiencing structural inequities; disproportionate unemployment, wealth inequality, and gentrification.

Faith Inspired Leaders

Those inspired to make positive changes that solve or at least address social injustice and relieve human suffering.

Place-Based Investors

Address the needs of neighborhoods and regions that are underserved and under-funded.

Anchor Institutions

Those embedded in the ecosystem of the community that possess a strong connection as well as a depth of knowledge and understanding of their community needs and circumstances. Anchor Institutions, such as faith communities and BIPOC organizations, possess underutilized real estate, lack of access to funding, and lack of mission-aligned development consultation and preparation to bring vital community service providing projects to fruition.
