How to Approach Human Gain Investments

Registration is closed

Many foundations support nonprofits who provide human services for those who struggle with the basics of life. The needs are clear & formidable: food, housing, physical & mental well-being,  isolation, & the effects on those who cannot escape toxic environments.

All of these nonprofits need more money & the requests can be overwhelming.  With the principles of Results 1st, however, foundation responses can be very intentional. 

This workshop will help foundations consider a fundamental distinction between funding services vs. investing in human gain. The language of “social services” can lead to the presumption that the service is the result. Yet not all persons who receive a service get to a gain. What makes the difference? We have some answers for you!

Foundations will learn how to better:

• Differentiate among nonprofits on the basis of effective need response rather than depth of need addressed.  This moves from widespread support of many groups to more concentrated investments in those offering the highest return in human gain.

• Design proposals that specify results for a given set of persons and the milestones they will use to show they are on track.

• Encourage techniques shown to be effective such as getting participants fully engaged in owning & implementing solutions. Participant activation is critical in getting to & sustaining gains.

Session Target

Participants can state at least one new approach or idea they plan will use to increase effectiveness of grants to increase human gains.
