Equanimity Foundation

Equanimity Foundation

Equanimity Foundation (EQF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to inclusive, sustainable, and transformative global development. Equanimity means calm, composure, and resilience in the face of adversity. Our mission is to partner with underserved and vulnerable populations so they can thrive even in adverse conditions and ensure foreign policy and aid efforts prioritize their needs. At heart, Equanimity’s experts are innovators and relentless human rights advocates who execute with insight, strategy, and a penchant for excellence.

EQF delivers comprehensive solutions and key forges partnerships to address global challenges. We employ a holistic approach to delivering inclusive development interventions. Unlike traditional organizations that often fail to account for the diversity of local contexts and have limited understanding of cultural nuances, EQF lends a highly tailored perspective to international capacity building.

EQF was founded on the belief that a fresh approach is needed to catalyze change and achieve transformational systemic reforms. Our approach increases sustainable results for underrepresented and marginalized communities by highlighting the perspectives of vulnerable populations. We understand the highly integrated nature and intersectionality lens needed to develop tailored programming. Our experts have successfully implemented programs in fragile, conflict-afflicted, and post-conflict locations.
