funding the financial gap as necessary.

 

  • Investments in real estate development with Gap Fund ($1 million average size).

making repairs sooner rather than later.

  • $15 million in Preservation Funds made available over five years.

  • Complete 200+ Portfolio Preservation Fund projects over five years.

 


Develop a comprehensive and integrated fundraising approach that strengthens collaboration, elevates communication, and leverages the powerful network of regional and national philanthropy professionals and board members.

 

  • Create a reliable, data-driven fundraising operation that employs key performance indicators, technology and targeted cultivation strategies to improve processes, measure performance, and generate incremental and significant growth in philanthropic support.

  • Annual Philanthropy Goals increase by 5% annually across the organization.
