Strategic Financing Toolkit for Tested, Effective Programs

Evidence2Success

This toolkit outlines a five-step strategic finance planning process geared toward supporting programs that serve children and families. It aims to help public and community leaders work together to examine what they want to finance, how their current investments align with their financing goals, and which strategies can help them achieve these goals.   This process and toolkit were developed to support Evidence2Success, an Annie E. Casey Foundation initiative meant to help leaders identify the resources that they need to start up, scale and sustain evidence-based programs that produce positive results for children and families.
