Projects

Our approach to funding involves seeking innovative strategies and promising programs that are informed by data and have the potential to contribute to sustainable systems change. We identify local champions and partners who can turn innovative ideas into measurable results. We also tie funding to performance benchmarks to ensure that organizations are accountable for outcomes they have defined. Once projects are funded, we work closely with the organizations to maximize project success.
