If we are truly committed to a better world, life should not return to normal for any of us. It is against this backdrop that we will come together for GIH’s Annual Conference on Health Philanthropy from June 8-11.
Join us for an on-demand conversation featuring community-based leaders and funders about why investing in care workers is vital to the future of health and our economy. This panel also explores the policy opportunities that can drive change in the nation’ s pandemic recovery and innovative local practices that can lead to greater health, racial, and gender equity.
To help health funders meet this critical moment, GIH partnered with seven philanthropy support organizations to develop a funder toolkit on climate, health, and equity. The toolkit offers an overview of the current funding landscape, hubs of collaboration, and resources available by issue focus, geographical region, and impacted populations.
COVID-19 has had disproportionate impact on justice-involved people because health and justice systems maintain discrete siloes due to longstanding policies. These policies create structural barriers to an integrated response to people living at the intersection of these two systems. Focusing resources in this overlooked area provides an excellent opportunity for a return on investment for grantmakers seeking to make impactful change.
The “how” of cross-funder collaboration—and knowing where to start—is not always easy to figure out. As colleagues from both a regional and national health philanthropy, we are proud to share insights on our unique journey from relationship-building to collaboration.
Moving towards sustained and authentic relationship-building with community partners requires that we examine and shift away from practices, policies, and behaviors that prioritize the transactional components of grantmaking. To do this, we must acknowledge and confront power where it lies within our foundations and work at all levels of the organization to truly make this shift.
How strong is your organization’s relationship with local health departments in the communities you serve? Do you view governmental public health as an essential partner? How can you best increase and improve support for state and local public health departments? What types of investments are most likely to yield transformative change? As the future of public health hangs in the balance, philanthropic organizations must renew their commitment to governmental public health agencies and reimagine strategies for strengthening these partnerships.
