Rural Philanthropy Toolkit
Welcome to the Rural Philanthropy Toolkit. This toolkit compiles emerging practices and resources to support rural communities seeking to build relationships with philanthropies across the United States.
Philanthropies provide a critical source of funding for community-based health programs. However, it can be challenging for small and rural communities to build relationships with philanthropies, particularly when they are not located in the same geographic area.
This toolkit presents practical strategies that can help rural communities build successful partnerships with philanthropies. In particular, it focuses on:
- Preparing for partnerships with philanthropies
- Conducting outreach to philanthropies
- Establishing and sustaining partnerships with philanthropies
The target audiences for the toolkit are rural organizations including: healthcare providers, such as hospitals and clinics; nonprofit organizations; faith-based organizations; businesses; networks; and community-based organizations.
