To that end, the Foundation:
Actively provides a neutral space for nonprofit partners to convene in order to build collaboration and advocate for common issues; and pursues systemic change through advocacy, research and education.
Underpinning the Foundation’s strategic initiatives is a strong base of research and a deep commitment to developing talent and institutional sustainability in the social sector. The Foundation views its strategies holistically, employing a broad range of tools including advocating for systemic change, convening partnerships, strengthening grantee capacity, developing talent, and forging connections between strategic areas to achieve impact. One of the primary tools is leverage: helping grantees find the resources required to thrive, plan for a viable future, and continue serving the community as relevant needs persist.
