Funding

Fundraising support is available. Our process has followed funder endorsed organizational appraisals like the Core Capacity Assessment Tool. Capacity building grants are a growing trend among both private and government grant-makers. Stronger organizations achieve better social justice outcomes and are more sustainable, resilient and effective.

Is Built on Values® worth the investment?

  • Organizations with engaged employees outperform others by 47% to 202% (Watson-Wyatt). - How much time and/or money is spent in your institution on top down programs, directives, evaluations, meetings, mandates and work overall, where the emotional investment is low?

  • Great places to work average 65% engagement and above compared to 31% for teachers, the number one predictor of student engagement. - A one-percentage-point uptick in a school’s average student engagement has been found tied to an average six-point increase in reading achievement and eight points in math.

  • Strong organizational cultures save in costs on turnover (10-30% of the salary depending on school/district), attendance (disengaged teachers miss twice the rate of engaged teachers) and significantly outperform the average. - How valuable is the engagement level of your children's teachers and principal? What happens to student engagement (55% average and drops off precipitously starting at 5th grade) if the school workplace culture begins to thrive? Great schools serving high poverty populations have been consistently shown to be game changers in the community.

  • State education, districts, and university/college administrative offices are great places to start, as traditional top-down organizations. - How is the character of your organization? Are people consistently doing the right thing or going above and beyond? Most importantly, is the behavior of your team inspiring leaders below to follow your example? Help distribute today’s culture leadership model, one high in inclusivity, trust, pride, and camaraderie.
