Every spring the Moses Taylor Foundation team comes together for a day-long retreat. Our fiscal year begins July 1 and the spring retreat provides time to reflect and plan the year ahead. One year into our strategic plan, this spring’s retreat focused on adaptive strategy---balancing clarity and focus with the flexibility to pivot in response to changing needs. Little did we know when we gathered the first week in March, how quickly we would all be pivoting to adapt to COVID-19.
Our response to COVID-19 continues to evolve. This newsletter describes how we’re leaning into responsive grantmaking and capacity building while our school-based health and older adult isolation initiatives are reevaluating next steps. As we pivot, your feedback is shaping our response.
Please take a moment to complete the Institute for Public Policy and Economic Development’s COVID-19 Survey to help leaders across our region understand the impact of COVID-19 on your organization and the people you serve. We know uncertainty persists and needs continue to change. Let’s stay in touch to identify the best ways of working together.
