Emerging Leaders Fund
Dr. Steve Larson and Dr. Matthew O'Brien, Puentes de Salud; Philadelphia, PA
The Emerging Leaders Fund is designed to support the critical role that emerging leaders play in creating positive change. The Foundation recognizes that these individuals and their organizations face unique internal and external challenges: they devote time and energy to the everyday demands of building an organization while developing new thinking, trying untested approaches and cultivating broader networks. To provide critical support for these leaders and their organizations, the Foundation awards a four-year general operating grant totaling $200,000 to each recipient’s organization. Recipients are selected based on their creative vision, leadership capacity, potential for impact, and commitment to innovation and learning in one or more of the Foundation’s interest areas. This grant program is focused primarily on emerging leaders working east of the Mississippi River.
Please note that the Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals for this grant program.
