More Than Money: Making a Difference with Assistance Beyond the Grant
The Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) in 2008 decided to take a close look at how foundations provide assistance beyond grant funds to nonprofit organizations to improve the effectiveness of their work. The CEP surveyed thousands of grantees as well as nearly 200 foundation program staff members and ceos around the country. The resultant report featured case studies on three successful models of this type of work—the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, The Wallace Foundation and the Winter Park Health Foundation (WPHF). The WPHF section of the report is titled “A Small Foundation Staffs Up to Achieve Big Goals.”
