Seeking to leverage social entrepreneurship to close gaps in society, we realized our strategy could not be linear. We needed to move forward with multiple perspectives in mind. Our goals are supported by four core elements that will create fly-wheel momentum when harnessed to the best of their capacity.
Additionally, our work (the programs; grantmaking; our communications and efforts to codify successful models; and partnerships we create) is designed to advance multiple elements to ensure that we are always leveraging to the best of our ability.
