How it Works:
Each of our philanthropic investment funds, described below, supports a mix of grantmaking and strategic incubation activities that meet our criteria of (1) being grounded in social science theory, (2) having a rigorous impact evaluation approach, and (3) demonstrating clear potential to scale.
Because Civic Health Project covers all of our operational costs through the sustained financial support of our co-founder Rob Romero, 100% of investments in the philanthropic funds described below are redistributed as grants to nonpartisan, nonprofit organizations, typically within 6-12 months of receiving the funds.
