Helmsley Charitable Trust

Background

The Trust’s Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) program aims to improve the lives of people living with T1D. To that end, the Trust supported organizations that educate and provide other resources to people with T1D.

Challenge

Some of these organizations were start-ups or largely volunteer run, so the Trust wanted to build the field through grant and consulting support to grantees.

Solution

Over several years, Penn Flood Consulting providing tailored consulting assistance to grantees, including business planning for a start-up, strategic planning for an organization needing revitalization, and regular coaching for their leadership. Penn Flood also supported the Trust in evaluating the impact of this consulting support on grantee capacity.
