Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Racism within our society and within our systems has caused disproportionate health outcomes by race, age, gender, and geography. The Foundation targets social determinants of health that are out of equity, galvanizes multi-sector leaders, diagnoses the system problem, and seeks to change the system to improve outcomes.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Foundation's focus is to cultivate compelling solutions to address our Community's most important needs by leveraging collaborations and the sustained commitment of funders and advocates. Our goal is to help develop solutions that generate sustained and measureable improvements to our community's health.

As we launch the Foundation and embark on our first grant cycle in early 2016, we will grant funds in a responsive manner. This means that we will grant funds based on the ideas that we collect from the community to start, rather than funding specific elements. This is another way to engage and listen to the wisdom of the providers who have been serving the community or have ideas to serve the community. We will move, over time, from field-based ideas to investment areas as we learn from our evaluation process what we are most effective in improving based on the resources identified.

In order for the Foundation to impact policy and systems change and provide optimal technical assistance to our grantees and partners who are engaged in policy and systems work, we will invest time, energy and resources in building a strong internal policy and research arm. The advocacy community in our place-based focus area of St. Petersburg, the Tampa Bay area at-large and throughout the state plays a vitally important role in empowering community members and decision-makers to action on the many social determinants of health. The Foundation will play an important role in being a resource to the advocacy community.

We have just embarked on our first grant cycle. We expect to award our first grants in approximately four months time.
