Support a Runner

At Acumen, we are in it for the long run. For 20 years, we’ve continued to chase after the most innovative approaches to tackling poverty: investing in systems-changing companies serving low-income customers, equipping leaders with the tools to rise above the status quo, and pushing the world to reimagine how markets can work for all.

Our newest challenge is 26.2 miles. Help us reach the finish line by supporting the 2021 Acumen NYC Marathon team!
