SF B2C Receives $400,000 Grant from Daniels Fund
We are excited to announce that the Santa Fe Birth to Career Collaboration has been awarded a $400,000 multi-year grant from the Daniels Fund. The grant will support the next two years of SF B2C’s collective impact efforts to improve outcomes for birth to career success, well-being and equity in Santa Fe. In 2014, the Daniels Fund provided an initial $200,000 grant that enabled SF B2C to build a strong community-wide partnership and momentum for collective impact with a shared vision, Collaborative Working Groups, Data Hub, Community Summit and a series of other convenings and reports. We are grateful for the continued support and partnership.
This new two-year grant will allow us to take full steps forward with stronger capacity as we move to implement the Collective Action Plans developed in partnership with the Mayor’s Children, Youth and Communities Cabinet and many Collaborative Working Group partners. In 2016, SF B2C will also be partnering with the Mayor’s Cabinet to onboard six AmeriCorps VISTA members to help implement the Collective Action Plans. Stay tuned for more positive momentum you can be part of and, if you haven’t yet, sign up to be a Collective Impact Partner.
Daniels Fund, established by cable television pioneer Bill Daniels, is a private charitable foundation dedicated to making life better for the people of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming through its grants program, scholarship program, and ethics initiative.
