2016: A Year of Deep Collaboration and Deeper Impact
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the HNH Foundation.
We are proud to continue and deepen our longstanding mission: to improve the health and wellness of New Hampshire’s population, with a focus on its most vulnerable children.
In 2015, we expanded our funding priorities to include reducing food insecurity and reducing and preventing childhood trauma. Since that time, over $800,000 in grant awards have been awarded for programs that increase access to local, affordable, and healthy food, and that prevent or ameliorate childhood trauma, abuse, neglect, and exposure to violence.
In recent years, the Board of Directors has been interested in deepening the impact of the Foundation’s grantmaking through collaborating with other funders. While we have co-funded initiatives in the past, our work in 2016 was focused on a more intention- al collaboration. In partnership with the Endowment for Health and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, the HNH Foundation funded efforts to strengthen advocacy and build leadership capacity to improve the health outcomes of the residents of New Hampshire. We are convinced that deeper collaboration leads to deeper impact and we are excited about this opportunity to enhance and strengthen the field. We invite you to learn more about our work and grantee partners in this Annual Report. Beyond the specific grant awards, we hope that you will consider us a partner in the coming year.
