The Rauch Foundation of Long Island will describe how family foundations can play a unique role as a neutral hub to forge relationships across local business, government, and media that can multiply investment in regional economic recovery. Foundation President Nancy Rauch Douzinas and a panel of collaborators will articulate and illustrate five principles for using research, relationship networks, advocacy and targeted grants to open up blocked civic systems and address community needs at scale. The approach de-risks grantmaking by multiplying stakeholders in an initiative’s success, and it lays groundwork for further collaboration.
