The Osteopathic Heritage Foundation and The Columbus Foundation recently announced the 2016 funding award recipients through the Capital Improvement Funding Partnership. This year, nineteen organizations received support for capital campaigns and projects designed to improve service delivery for Franklin County’s most vulnerable populations.
In 2014, the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation (OHF) and The Columbus Foundation (TCF) joined resources and program interests to launch the Capital Improvement Funding Partnership. Recognizing the value of collaboration and the need for capital investments among nonprofits, the foundations committed to a three-year funding partnership to support capital campaigns and projects designed to better serve vulnerable populations in Franklin County.
Research found significant demand for capital support following the economic downturn and recovery period. By partnering, the foundations are better positioned to meet the needs of area nonprofits and leverage the support necessary to make capital improvements a success. The foundations seek to advance strategies that can demonstrate and achieve measurable outcomes as a result of capital investments.
