We just announced our first-ever grant partners. But what’s the one thing they have in common that we’d like to improve? See how you can help spread positive change and transformation to community health across Texas.
Since launching the grant-making system at the Episcopal Health Foundation, I am frequently asked by prospective applicants, “What constitutes a good grant proposal?” Is it writing a good statement of need or utilizing SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic or relevant, and time-oriented) objectives? Still other questions have focused on matters of alignment—typically asked something like this: since EHF funds community-based primary care, and I’m a community-based primary care provider, that’s alignment—right?
This is the first post on the Episcopal Health Foundation’s brand new V1SION blog. The purpose of our blog is expand on our one vision (V1SION) of transformation to healthy communities for all. We believe to transform community health, it means changing the way philanthropy traditionally works. So, we want you to know what we’re doing—the projects we’re working on, the conversations we’re having, the questions we’re wrestling with each step along the way.
