CoThinkk is dedicated to social change philanthropy by bringing together community leaders who care about the economic and social well-being of communities of color in Asheville and Western North Carolina.
This question is being raised in the face of staggering economic, housing, health and poverty statistics about African-American and Latinx communities in a part of the state where communities of color account for a relatively smaller portion of the total population. These conversations are encouraging communities to collectively think about how they can pool their resources and talents to create a platform for individuals to drive social change, consequently creating the space for CoThinkk.
Looking forward, CoThinkk is building on its community-driven model that leverages the collective time, talent, and treasure of engaged individuals toward a collective impact agenda. Through this model, CoThinkk is working to create new systems, processes, and relationships that have the potential to yield equitable outcomes and to support a leadership pipeline of African American and Latinx members in the community poised to impact future generations in the region.
