General Grantmaking Effectiveness

To achieve wide-scale positive changes in our State’s health system, we need to support our grantees in achieving the outcomes we seek together. We also need to support work that will result in outcomes that can be sustained by an organization beyond the grant period. Finally, we work hard to support projects with a diverse range of organizations across the State that seek both local and statewide impact.

The indicators below help us to track our performance on general grantmaking effectiveness.
