The Rural Health Information Hub (RHI) recently released the Guide to Working with Rural Philanthropy.
This updated resource offers strategies rural organizations can use to build and sustain partnerships with philanthropies that invest in rural health.
This guide describes emerging practices to support rural organizations building partnerships with philanthropies. Philanthropies provide an important source of funding for health programs in rural communities. However, it can be challenging for small and rural communities to build relationships with philanthropies, particularly if they are not located in the same geographic area as philanthropies. A Guide to Working with Rural Philanthropy compiles emerging practices and resources to support rural communities seeking to build partnerships with philanthropies across the United States. The audiences for this guide are rural organizations including healthcare providers, nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations, businesses, health coalitions, and community-based organizations, among others.
A Guide to Working with Rural Philanthropy was produced by the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis in collaboration with the Rural Health Information Hub (RHIhub). The guide is adapted from the Rural Philanthropy Toolkit. The toolkit was first published in 2018 and funded by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Department (HHS).
