Guiding a foundation start-up:
GIA supported the start-up of a private, Silicon Valley-based foundation focused on healthcare and the arts. The foundation was envisioned as a platform to provide the strategic knowledge, skills, and capacity for individual and group donors to engage in catalytic giving and sustainable change. GIA worked with the founders of the foundation to develop the strategic vision, articulate a programmatic focus on healthcare innovators, and launch a fundraising campaign to support an inaugural social innovator. As a result of its engagement with GIA, the Foundation targeted healthcare delivery in the developing world as its first initiative. GIA helped to provide a tailored giving experience to individual donors, advocate for sustainable models of healthcare delivery, and enhance donation impact through collaborations.
