Community Catalyst Grants Management Program

Community Catalyst’s Grant Management Program is a comprehensive grants management and support service for philanthropic clients and partners seeking maximum impact from their health philanthropy.

Working with our philanthropic clients and partners, we provide responsive grants management, comprehensive administration and trusted advisory services to ensure philanthropic funds create maximum impact where they are needed most (e.g., in a targeted region or state, at the federal policy level, and/ or toward a specific issue).  .

Community Catalyst has been providing leadership and direction to organizations advancing progressive health reforms for almost 20 years. Building on this experience, we developed an integrated approach that pairs grants management with technical assistance to build advocacy capacity. Our technical assistance approach is steeped in Community Catalyst’s “System of Advocacy,” a blend of six core capacities that, working together, drive policy change. Since 2008, Community Catalyst has directly managed and evaluated over $30 million in sub-grants to state-based organizations and campaigns in more than 30 states - $7.2 million in 2015-2016 alone.
