Our president Antony was recently featured in a new "Virtual Roundtable" on regional approaches to philanthropy facilitated by our friends at Philanthropy Northwest. Discussing EHF's "Philanthropy 3.0" approach to grantmaking, Antony highlighted some of the big wins over the past seven years as well as some exciting opportunities on the horizon.
We are proud to help spread the word about one of the newest projects we are involved in: the Cascadia Foodshed Financing Project. A new collaborative formed through the Philanthropy Northwest network, the CFFP aims to grow the local food economy in Oregon and Washington. Take a look at this blog post by CFFP founder Tim Crosby to learn more about this new effort, or visit the project website.
We are pleased to align efforts with the Cascadia Foodshed Financing Project to help make healthy, local foods more accessible in our region. As many readers know, our Obesity Prevention Initiative was the first of our strategic grantmaking programs. Launched in 2011, the program has expanded to nine school districts in Eastern Washington, including our most recent partnership with Spokane Public Schools.
