Program Related Investments

We provide funds at below-market interest rates that can be particularly useful to start, grow, or sustain a program, or when results cannot be achieved with grant dollars alone.

Community Fund for Wellness

Our participatory grantmaking alters the traditional process of philanthropic giving by empowering service providers and community-based organizations to define the strategy around a specific issue area or population.

Policy Meets Practice

We support local small- and mid-size organizations that are working to advance recommendations outlined in the Think Bigger Do Good Policy Series.

Grantmaking

We fund organizations and projects which disrupt our current behavioral health space and create impact at the individual, organizational, and societal levels.

Technical Assistance for Anti-Violence Community Expansion Grantees

Logic Model/Theory of Change Consultation

The RISE Partnership continues its work through a partnership with the City of Philadelphia to provide technical assistance to 31 organizations that were recipients of anti-violence community expansion grants.

About

The RISE Partnership continues its work by providing capacity building support and technical assistance to 31 organizations that were recipients of City of Philadelphia anti-violence community expansion grants (CEG). Adapted from RISE Partnership’s implementation cohort model, the technical assistance is tailored to best fit the needs of the CEG cohort. Grantees have the opportunity to: participate in: 

  • Participate in four large group trainings focused on building capacity for program planning and evaluation
  • Participate in three small group meetings with organizations that have similar focus areas to build peer-to-peer learning and collaboration
  • Engage with evaluation consultants for tailored support over six individualized sessions

The goals of the technical assistance program are aligned with that of the RISE partnership – to improve each participating organization’s internal capacity to collect and analyze their own data; tell their story and communicate their impact; and to navigate challenges related to rapid growth, environmental changes, or shifts in strategic direction.
