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.

About Derrick M. Gordon, PhD

Derrick is a Senior Evaluation Consultant with YaleEVAL and the Director of Research, Policy, and Program on Male Development at The Consultation Center. Derrick is known for his expertise in collaborating with community-based programs to evaluate the services they provide, broaden the mental health supports in community contexts, and for his work focused on men on color socially on the fringes (e.g., low-income fathers, men transitioning from incarceration, young fathers). In his work with these men, he focuses on documenting the services they receive, how data can provide rigorous and systematic feedback to improve services, and increasing their participation across a number of spheres (e.g., family, community life). Trained as a clinical and community psychologist, Derrick is experienced in conducting program evaluations, needs assessments, and evaluations of service delivery systems. Derrick is an Associate Professor whose scholarly work attempts to bring his evaluation and program consultation tools into the academic sphere though the exploration of questions relevant in community context and most applicable to the growth and the development of men and men of color.
