Blue Meridian Partners

Blue Meridian Partners is a group of results-oriented philanthropists seeking to transform the life trajectories of children and youth living in poverty across America. Blue Meridian finds the best of what works and invests significantly to bring these promising strategies and programs to scale. We provide social sector leaders of evidence-based interventions the upfront growth capital their organizations require in order to reach their full potential. We provide philanthropists with an approach for deploying their capital effectively while sharing the costs, risks and rewards. Incubated at the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, Blue Meridian Partners is pooling resources of $1.7 billion and more. With these resources, we make large, performance-based “investments” in exceptional nonprofits – committing as much as $200 million to each – that are poised to make a national impact on social problems confronting economically disadvantaged children and youth.
