Hey! Thanks for Stopping By...

I'm Portia Richardson a Founder,  Veteran Executive Director, and  Non-Profit Consultant at The Impact Institute.

For 9 years, I had the opportunity to lead the growth and development of Tumaini DC, Inc., an international 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that transforms communities and schools through culturally responsive and trauma-informed social and emotional learning curricula and programming. 


In January 2021, I launched the Impact Institute to provide exclusive learning space and community for social entrepreneurs to increase their impact and income! When I founded Tumaini DC, Inc. in 2013, I had no idea what I was doing. I failed, I cried, I quit, I started over, and I spent tons of my own money to influence change in my community! To date, The Tumaini Way SEL curriculum and program have impacted 20k+ students and educators domestically and internationally!


Through The Impact Institute, I am sharing all of my knowledge, skills, funding strategies, and resources so that you can focus on increasing your INCOME and IMPACT through game-changing social entrepreneurship! We have done all of the research so that you don't have to!!
