you are a potential grant recipient or anyone interested in the
well-being of our community, the mission of Heart of Florida
United Way (HFUW) is easy to understand: "Our goal
is to create lasting, measurable change -- not just for today,
but for generations to come."
To accomplish that goal in
collaboration with community agencies, HFUW employs its
"Investing in Results" strategic prevention
initiative. Explaining how that initiative works was the
focus of HFUW's Director of Community Investment, JahKiya
Investing in Results offers nonprofit
agencies a well-developed and structured process for applying for
grant awards. "Lasting and measurable
change" are among the key words. So is the word
"investing," with a focus on four key areas including:
1) Alleviating hunger and homelessness, 2) Building safe
communities through education, 3) Developing healthy children and
families, and 4) Improving financial stability.
Among JahKiya's most important jobs is
providing assistance to grant applicants. When asked about
one of the positive results of the Investing in Results process,
JahKiya responded, "The process enables us to work with
community agencies in a new and different way. We get to see
what they are doing today to help our community."
As part of her presentation, JaKiya
offered a detailed summary of how "Investing in Results"
