Vulnerable people are at the core of our Donors’
Investment Framework.

 

 

 

The Investment Framework acknowledges the influence of the family, community and sector systems in which people live. It recognizes these dynamic, interrelated systems are affected by the policy and research environments in which they operate.

Our Donors’ granting program is focused on creating the conditions – individual as well as systemic – necessary for people to have the opportunity to realize their full potential and prosper.

REALIZING POTENTIAL

Of economically disadvantaged children, youth and families

Our Donors invest in education, health, housing stability and economic security

Our Donors believe in supporting people who have the ability and desire to learn and help themselves. Succeeding in school, gaining meaningful employment and pursuing prosperity, finding stable housing and improving mental and physical health are all steps on the journey toward economic self-sufficiency.

GIVING IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE

TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED, VULNERABLE, SICK OR FACING AN IMMEDIATE THREAT

Our Donors invest in food, shelter, safety, access to health care, basic literacy and crisis intervention

Our Donors believe there are times when people need a helping hand. Immediate assistance that addresses survival, safety and basic needs can offer a necessary breathing space. Once immediate pressures have eased, individuals and their families have the opportunity to realize their potential.

APPLIED RESEARCH

In support of our Donors’ vision

Our Donors invest in applied research in health and social issues

Our Donors believe in the application of late-stage social science and health research based in community settings and focused on moving vulnerable populations toward health, education and economic self-sufficiency. New ideas and robust thinking lead to innovation, establish best practices and identify effective interventions and programmatic solutions. Community partners allow for the application of research and the opportunity to affect measurable change for vulnerable populations.

SUPPORTIVE SYSTEMS

CREATE CONDITIONS THAT FOSTER HEALTH, EDUCATION AND ECONOMIC SELF-SUFFICIENCY

Our Donors invest in
families, communities and nonprofit sector systems to improve outcomes for vulnerable people

Our Donors believe families, communities and the nonprofit sector are the primary systems that support people on their journey to education, health and economic self-sufficiency. Effective family functioning results in positive outcomes for both children and parents. Community initiatives can solve complex problems and address systemic issues at the root of poverty. A strong and well-resourced nonprofit sector can improve the human condition with the delivery of effective programs and services. When supportive family, community and sector systems foster individual initiative, economically disadvantaged people move toward prosperity.

PRESERVING FREEDOM & LIBERTY

For a free and prosperous society

Our Donors invest in freedom, individual liberty and the promotion of free markets and free enterprise

Our Donors believe that the protection of individual rights, democracy, free markets, free enterprise, the rule of law and equality before the law allow human creativity, individual initiative and economic growth to flourish.
