The Nonprofit Incubator


What we believe

We started the nonprofit incubator to provide a complete foundation to help launch organizations doing biblical justice and advancing God’s kingdom

We’re starting organizations that change the fabric of our city for God’s kingdom

How it works

    1. We start with a God given passion
    2. We provide the framework and support to turn that passion into an organization
    3. We create a sustainable model that allows for long-term impact

Who is this for?

You don’t need to have a business plan or a finance background- we’ll walk with you from idea to full nonprofit

There is no cookie-cutter method for impact. We’ve created the incubator to uniquely support anyone who has a skillset or passion they want to use to advance God’s kingdom.

We need your help!


We’re looking for people with backgrounds in business, finance, or entrepreneurship to help guide founders through their launch. We’ll give you all the training necessary. Are you available once every two weeks for coffee with the founder? 


We’re looking for passion, not people who have it all figured out! We’ll support you in every way possible through mentorship, business support, and a thriving ecosystem. Can you commit to 15 hours per month plus a coffee meeting once every two weeks with your mentor?

We would love to talk to anyone who might feel that God-inspired longing to change our city. Please email

Here are some nonprofits in process or previously launched:

Tamarisk Coffee

A coffee shop employing youth who are aging out of the foster care system to provide holistic support and mentorship through a network of partnerships and volunteers.

Carroll's Kitchen

More than just a meal, Carroll’s Kitchen is a nonprofit social enterprise restaurant creating healthy employment for women overcoming crisis.

Layers of Dignity

Layers of Dignity provides survivors with a tote bag full of toiletries and clothing for leaving the hospital.  Each tote includes a hand-written letter from a fellow survivor and a next-step guide for restoring hope and dignity after an assault. Instead of leaving in paper clothing, sexual assault survivors can take the first steps to healing in brand-new clothes, armed with resources and a community that will walk with them.

The Village Durham

Advocating for families seeking to remain together in safe and healthy homes.
