Founded in 1997

Vision New America is a non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation which aims to increase civic participation among underrepresented communities through matching grants, public policy internship programs, educational conferences and alumni activities. For nearly two decades, our main focus was on fostering the growth of individual youth leaders and engaging our local communities in social impact projects. After certification in 2013, we transitioned to being a funding organization with the goal of creating a national support network for underfunded organizations and non-profits that have gone under the radar. We support the growth of grass-root organizations across the nation through our matching grants, training and consulting services.
