MDC at Work

MDC projects over five decades have helped the South improve education, employment, economic security and philanthropic outcomes.


For 50 years, institutions, communities, foundations and others across the South have turned to MDC for deep knowledge and proven tools to design,  demonstrate, and sustain what works to boost everyone, particularly those who've been left behind, to higher rungs on the economic ladder.

We help communities and partners through:

  • Research and Analysis – understand the dynamic forces shaping your community and frame an action agenda for change.
  • Community Change – mobilize leaders and institutions to envision and create systemic change.
  • Advisory Services – deploy funding and resources strategically and replicate solutions that work.
