Navigating Currents of Change

How does your foundation or corporate giving program deal with change? Do you advance purposefully, adapting your theory of change as needed? Are you doing the same things you’ve always done and hoped you won’t run aground? Or—worst of all—are you adrift?

In this time of dynamic social change, every health funder must face staying relevant and effective. Like a choppy sea, the challenges come from multiple directions: demographic shifts that affect community dynamics; increasing levels of social inequality; rapidly changing public policies; a health care system in transition; and new change management tools and techniques—to name just a few.

The good news is that from small communities to the national arena, funders are developing successful strategies to stay abreast of change. The 2018 annual conference is a time to share these strategies, identify best practices, and discuss new priorities. Together, funders can find ways to move forward with conviction, providing the leadership that communities urgently need.


Each year, GIH asks health funders to share their thoughts on our annual conference theme. This year, we’ve asked evaluators from foundations to reflect on Navigating Currents of Change. Click here to read their essays.
