If you are part of grantmaking at your Community Foundation, either as a donor or with a nonprofit organizations receiving grants, our new Results Framework should be good news. For donors who use an Advised Fund to make the most of their charitable dollars, the Results Framework means a clear focus on four outcomes that our community has identified as important:
– Children are successful along the education pipeline.
– People can lead healthy lives.
– Communities are sustainable, livable and vibrant.
– Individuals and families are economically secure.
For the nonprofits who work so hard to make our community a better place for everyone, the Results Framework provides what we hope is a clearer view of where we are placing our current emphasis in grantmaking as well as leadership. Together, donors and nonprofits alike, we can do so much more and now we can measure the results to achieve maximum impact.
