    New York Community Trust

    “Rapid Response Grantmaking”

    New data is showing up daily. Delaware is one of two states who had an increase in poverty rate (primarily downstate), but the grant cycles are complete. How do we respond? The New York Community Trust has created a philanthropic model that combines their traditional grantmaking with a portion to respond as information is received.

    About the New York Community Trusts Work.

    There’s no single way to approach complex challenges such as homelessness, childhood development, or criminal justice reform. It requires a mix of advocacy, innovation, leadership, and research, to name a few strategies. The rise of rapid-response grantmaking has been fascinating to watch, especially since foundations have long been criticized for being slow to act. But emergency-driven strategies aren’t sustainable for the long-term, and funders need to find that delicate balance between being responsive and sticking with core priorities. NYCT seems to be doing a great job in this regard.

    Nonprofit Repositioning Fund-Philadelphia

    “Merger, Collaboration, or What”

    The Nonprofit Repositioning Fund supports long-term, strategic alliances and collaborations to build organizational sustainability and improve program and service delivery. In a rapidly changing environment for the region’s nonprofits, long-term collaboration can be an effective strategic option to enhance performance for two or more organizations – where the resulting whole can be greater than the sum of its parts. To do this we make grants to encourage and support formal, long-term collaborations between and among two or more nonprofit organizations. These include alliances, back-office consolidations, joint ventures, mergers, and acquisitions
