The Rural Health Information Hub and the NORC Walsh
Center for Rural Health Analysis will present the Rural
Philanthropy Toolkit, which is designed to help rural
communities to build relationships with philanthropies.
Developed by NORC on behalf of the Federal Office of
Rural Health Policy (FORHP), the toolkit compiles
emerging practices and resources to support rural
communities seeking to build relationships with
philanthropies. This toolkit presents practical
strategies that can help rural communities prepare for
partnerships with philanthropies; conduct outreach to
philanthropies; and establish and sustain partnerships
In addition to an overview of the toolkit we will feature
two speakers that will describe lessons learned related
to establishing and sustaining partnerships with
philanthropies. The Rural Philanthropy Toolkit
is currently available on the RHIhub website.
