Team Member



Kolu Zigbi serves as a re-sorceress, strategist, connector, facilitator, and catalyst for social and environmental justice, with a focus on collective governance of land and financial resources by BIPOC and marginalized communities. She believes in solidarity more than charity and promotes liberatory power. Kolu works with grassroots groups and funders to activate participatory grantmaking, develop blended capital strategies, and build values-driven collaborative cultures. She is deeply inspired by ancestors, particularly her paternal grandfather who was an upland rice farmer, traditional town chief and healer in Liberia and her maternal grandmother who directed a school in Naples Italy.
