Guiding a Philanthropy's Transformation
Healthy Communities Foundation
The press release heralded the news of two major changes for a Chicago regional health conversion foundation, “On May 15, 2017, The Arthur Foundation Board selected its new president. In additional news, we are changing the foundation’s name to Healthy Communities Foundation (HCF) to better reflect its mission.”
With Millennia’s help, the entirely new HCF board worked for a year to re-energize and refocus its grant making on building strong communities, able to foster increased health and wellness in western Cook County, a demographically diverse area on the periphery of Chicago proper. Our consultants guided board development, executive transition and strategy development as the seventeen year old foundation listened and learned from community health and human service providers and fashioned a new mission, values and vision that will strategically and additively alleviate health disparities and promote well-being in the communities served.
