We believe that great programs can forge a path toward systems change as much through replication and dissemination of best practices as through scaling their models. We search out those programs led by visionaries committed to sharing their innovation and best practices to improve the whole field — as well as their own communities .
To ensure that our small family fund can maximize the number and size of our grants while attaining maximum impact from our funding, we will:
• stay laser-focused on a limited number of program models and geographic areas;
• focus on programs that have elements or best practices that can be replicated else-where;
• collaborate extensively with other funders to support great organizations, share best practices and build the fields we work in.
