Funding Values

The primary goal of the Foundation is to improve overall community health by concentrating on communities with the highest needs and the least available resources. Our approach is to focus on areas that are defined social determinants of health.

The Foundation is guided by a strong set of core values. These will be reflected in all aspects of our grantmaking, convenings, research, communications and day-to-day activities as we interact with our community and pursue our mission.

We believe that long term community issues require a systems approach to address root causes. We believe that programs that demonstrate an understanding and commitment to effective overall health prevention will strengthen our community.

We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We believe that collaboration will lead to stronger outcomes and greatly benefit our community.

Convening

Bringing cross-sector stakeholders and organizations together to connect and collaborate on program ideas, identification of needs, to build relationships in a safe space and to streamline efforts is a top priority of the Foundation. The Foundation’s role is to provide a safe, comfortable, friendly environment where convening can occur and the best information can be pulled into the room.

Listening Sessions

The Foundation highly values listening and engagement and that is why our Listening Tour was our top priority this past summer. We were honored to spend several weeks out in St. Petersburg neighborhoods talking with close to 300 St. Petersburg social service providers and residents about the health and well-being of our community.
