Open Road Fund

The Open Road Fund returns money directly to Black folks so they can build something long-lasting for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Who We Are

Advisory Committee

Evaluation/Research information

We are proud to partner with Research in Action (RIA) for evaluation of the Open Road Fund’s impact on awardees. Research in Action is working to reclaim the power of research for the community. Led by Dr. Brittany Lewis, RIA is based in the Twin Cities, and has a multi-racial and gender diverse team. 

Research in Action worked with Nexus and the advisory committee to create the Definition of Black Wealth. Moving ahead, Research in Action is advising the Open Road team on our annual grantee evaluation surveys and is leading the longitudinal study of Open Road Fund award impacts on grantees.
