The challenges facing foundations as organizations include board issues, finances, grantmaking, evaluation, and communications. GIH addresses these challenges in ways that enhance funders' abilities to make a difference in the health of the populations and communities they serve. GIH programming includes hands-on technical assistance, webinars, and surveys on trends in the field of health philanthropy.
Contact Katherine Treanor for more information about our programming in this area.
Communications can support grantmaking in many different ways, and foundations vary widely in how they use communications to advance their work. How loud a voice should foundations have? How should they use it? The David and Lucile Packard Foundation wanted to know what its grantees had to say about this, and partnered with the Aspen Institute’s Aspen Planning and Evaluation Program to help answer these questions.
