How we work
To maximize the efficiency of our funding, we target specific countries and program areas. We currently fund directly to community based organizations and nonprofits in Liberia and Haiti, and to intermediaries that fund in West Africa.
To maximize the impact of our funding, we collaborate where possible with nonprofit organizations, intermediaries and forward looking governments and other funders that can provide additional resources and expertise.
To enhance the abilities of our grantees to achieve their work, we fund organizational capacity building and advocacy as well as direct services.
We also recognize that the field of international development is rapidly changing – populated by new players, enhanced by new technologies, constrained by political conflict and buffeted by changing environmental constraints. We welcome the opportunity to share best practices and brainstorm new approaches with both our grassroots and institutional colleagues.
