Charting the Course - 2016 Annual Report

Charting the Course is a comprehensive look at the innovative, creative, and powerful work that our grassroots grantees and donor activists are driving in New York City and beyond. Learn about the hard work that community organizing requires, from transforming an idea into a winning campaign; convening a strong coalition; building the capacity, skills, and leadership of community members and donor activists alike; and how strategic grantmaking allows North Star Fund and our donors to support fledgling organizations that are seizing the political moment and bringing the most marginalized New Yorkers to the fore.
