How We Work
The key to a successful partnership begins with identifying the right partners.
We continuously assess the landscape of our Areas of Work, looking for the greatest needs and the best organizational partners to address them. This includes developing cross-sector partnerships. We partner with non-profits, government, corporate business, and philanthropic organizations.
We proactively reach out to potential partners whose work is synergistic with our goals and our identified path to achieve social change. We periodically put out specific requests for proposals that potential partners can respond to.
We invest in the long-term success of an organization. We execute a disciplined, rigorous investment process with each partner, aimed at building institutional strength and providing the resources needed to grow.
Every partnership aims to achieve, within a specific time frame (ranging from 3-5 years) tangible results that varies depending on the nature of the projects. Both the results and the timeframe are arrived at jointly with our partners.
Once the project supported is financially or operationally sustainable RAAY Foundation exits the Partnership.
