    Cornerstone OnDemand, a provider of human capital management software, launched the CSOD Foundation in 2010 in order to share its technology, HR expertise, and capacity-building services with the nonprofit sector.

    The foundation recognizes that many nonprofits could achieve broader impact by using technology more effectively to expand the reach of their programs and services. To that end, the foundation's Impact Grant program is designed to support a select group of nonprofits that can effectively leverage the foundation's learning and development technology in innovative and tangible ways for significant community impact.

    Grant recipients receive a two-year donation of Cornerstone OnDemand software and services, including unlimited use of its learning management system and access to a range of pro bono business consulting services. While an LMS is often used to support the learning and development of an organization's internal employees, the focus of the Impact Grant program is to enable nonprofits to leverage this technology to better reach, train, and prepare their external networks — the individuals and communities they serve.

    Throughout the two-year period, the foundation will closely monitor the impact and progress made against the goals of the initiative. Projects that clearly demonstrate results, that are scalable, and that have executive-level support will be eligible to receive significant discounts on software at the conclusion of the grant cycle.

    The Russell Sage Foundation is accepting Letters of Inquiry for the final funding round of its Social, Economic and Political Effects of the Affordable Care Act program.

    The program supports innovative social science research on the social, economic, and political effects of the Affordable Care Act. The foundation is especially interested in funding analyses that address important questions about the effects of the reform on outcomes such as financial security and family economic well-being, labor supply and demand, participation in other public programs, family and children’s outcomes, and differential effects by age, race, ethnicity, nativity, or disability status. The foundation also is interested in research that examines the political effects of the implementation of the new law, including changes in views about government, support for future government policy changes, or the impact on policy development outside of health care.

    Funding is available for secondary analysis of data or for original data collection. Projects that propose novel uses of existing data and projects that propose to analyze newly available or underutilized data are welcomed. The foundation will not fund research on the effects of the ACA on healthcare delivery or health outcomes (e.g., barriers to implementation, changes in the quality of care and health status, or trends in enrollment and affordability), as other funders already do that.

    Grant requests are limited to no more than a two-year period, with a maximum of $150,000 (including overhead) per project.

    The Lead2Feed Challenge was established to encourage middle and high school students to hone their leadership skills by completing a service-learning project that solves hunger or another community need involving a public nonprofit organization.

    Student teams from public, private, or charter middle or high schools are invited to enter. Each team must create and execute a service-learning project that raises awareness of hunger by establishing a goal that attempts to solve a local, statewide, or national hunger-related issue (i.e., helping an existing charity or creating a project whose aim is to address or solve a hunger-related problem locally or nationally); develop an action plan to achieve the goal; and demonstrate leadership. Each entry also must include a written summary or video overview of the project as well as quantifiable results.

    To be eligible, entrants must be located in the United States, the District of Columbia, or Guam and be full-time students in grades 6 to 12 at a public, private, or charter middle school or high school. Each team must comprise at least three students and a sponsoring teacher or adult adviser.

    The quality of one’s health is determined by multiple factors: the natural environment, economic opportunities, genetic factors and, to a small degree, medical care. Yet, for many people, it is the conditions in which they live that impact their health the most. Many neighborhoods experience limited access to affordable fresh food, safe places for recreation, high-quality education and living-wage jobs. People who live in these neighborhoods may be exposed to environmental hazards due to the proximity of polluting industries and substandard housing. Improving these conditions promotes health equity among people in low-income neighborhoods and fosters improved health for entire communities.

    Community residents often have a sophisticated understanding of the challenges they face and the solutions that will alleviate these challenges. Equitable and sustainable solutions are best created when leaders of community-based organizations truly engage residents in creating strategies to address neighborhood priorities. Together, they can achieve results that are superior and more durable than solutions imposed from the outside.

    Community-driven solutions are locally determined and contextually appropriate approaches to influence changes in policies, systems, services and practices that create equitable conditions that affect the health and well-being of communities. Local and place-based approaches hold the potential create meaningful and lasting impact and serve as new models for community change.

    Through this focus area, we work to:

    Improve housing affordability and quality through local policy changes

    Support communities to achieve their aspirations to drive more equitable policies, systems and practices.

    Increase the adoption of food-oriented development.

    Increase the adoption of inclusive or community-driven models of community development that address community conditions such as housing, food systems and safety.
