2010 Giving Report

The foundation’s mission—transforming the lives of children living in urban poverty through better health and education—is big, aspirational and the North Star for everything we do.

But our day-to-day efforts are inspired by two more direct demands: 1) achieving measurable results for children, and 2) the roll-up-your-sleeves work of building the processes, models and standards that our partners and grantees need to scale and achieve systemic change. Sometimes that means building tools ourselves. More often it means helping our grantees build analytical rigor into their DNA, and then providing them with additional resources to help them achieve even greater results.
