We are integrating all of our grant-making with our gigantic commitment to eradicate all of our region’s social problems on an eighteen-year deadline. A year ago, we told you we were taking on a massive new coordinating role. Simply, we are funding coalitions. We received 174 responses to our Request for Information and look forward to announcing next steps in mid-June.
The goal is to develop solutions with an integrated—as opposed to an isolated—approach, recognizing that our social problems are entangled with one another, and that if we don’t try to solve them all at once together, their interconnectedness will undermine us. Call it the end of silos.
When you’re trying to do something no community has ever done before, community funding will look like funding you’ve never seen before.
