Joyce “going long with new, longer 5-year plan”

Share

Inside Philanthropy explores the Foundation’s longer new strategy, and what’s behind it.

The thinking behind the Foundation’s new 5-year strategy – pursuing core issues more thoroughly and making life easier for grantees – was the focus of a story in Inside Philanthropy in June.

A “refresh, not an overhaul” is how Darren Reisberg, Joyce’s vice president of programs and strategy, described the new plan, which was announced in May and updated a previous strategy that typically had run for only three years.

In an interview, Reisberg said Joyce was trying to be responsive to grantee frustrations when foundations frequently announce new plans.

He also outlined several developing Joyce initiatives. Among them: Helping local governments strategically access and spend COVID-19 related federal stimulus funds, and directing Foundation assets to early-stage founders of racially and gender-diverse firms over the next five years.
