The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation (Foundation) is pleased to release an evaluation of year one of its Fostering Effective Integration of Behavioral Health and Primary Care in Massachusetts grant program.
The Tufts Health Plan Foundation announced community investments of more than $1.8 million. Focused on systems and best practices, these grants reflect the Foundation’s commitment to supporting innovative approaches to improving health and wellness in diverse communities.
The Hyams Foundation is proud to partner with grantees in Boston and Chelsea in the pursuit of social justice and lived equality for all. One of the important racial justice issue areas the Foundation focuses on is expanding fair wages and benefits. Here are three efforts our grantees have been involved in.
Research shows that grantmakers that are more connected to their grantees—those that have an ear to the ground—are more likely to provide the support that nonprofits need to be successful; they are five times as likely to offer capacity-building support and two times as likely to offer multiyear support. We also know that tapping the knowledge and perspective of grantees and community members builds trust and helps shape more-effective solutions.
Building and Maximizing Your Major Donor Pipeline
Building and managing a major donor pipeline is a deliberate and thoughtful process. The session focuses on relationship science and rapport building techniques, tactical strategies to rapidly build your major donor pipeline, and tools to measure and manage donor relationships and progress toward giving. This session will provide useful techniques, tools, and strategies that will help participants rapidly build a major donor program.
Workshop participants will have an in-depth review of the major building blocks of successful grant proposals. Special attention will be paid to case statements, preparing budgets, management plans and evaluation. Pitfalls and best practices will be discussed, as well as what reviewers and funders are looking for. Ample time for challenging questions and hands-on experience will be included in the presentation.

With over 30,000 nonprofits in Massachusetts, competition for funding is high. How does one get a leg up?
The first step is doing ones homework. Foundations have missions just as do nonprofits and so it is vital to the success of your proposal that you find those funders who are aligned with your organization’s program area.
