Focus Area Dashboards
Our dashboards provide a visual summary of key components in each of our five focus areas – centered around each areas’ core strategies – and serve as a tool to map how work is progressing. We update these on a regular cadence to reflect changes in the environment, developments in our grantmaking, and updates within each of our strategies
Each features the following components:
Goal: We believe that, if accomplished, this generational goal will contribute to North Carolina becoming one of the healthiest states in the nation.
Signals in the Field: This section highlights trends, challenges, and opportunities in the external environment, ensuring we are mindful of the current, and ever-evolving, context within which we work.
Current Focus: While our generational goal will remain constant, our current focus is expected to evolve as we respond to shifts in the environment, learn, and make progress.
Strategies and Updates: Each area has specific strategies that guide our work. While there are many more strategies we could employ, the goal is to prioritize those that present the most opportunity and ensure we don’t dilute our work by spreading too thin. The updates elevate some examples of progress within each strategy.
Grantmaking Data: The dashboard includes grantmaking data such as the number and dollar amounts of active grants, counties impacted by our grantmaking, and new grants approved by fiscal year.
What to Expect in the Next Fiscal Year: This component takes each of the strategies and details specific work that will be accomplished in the current or upcoming fiscal year.
How We are Measuring Success: Understanding what success looks like allows us to track progress in the implementation of our strategies and toward our goals. This section also contains a timeframe for when we expect to update our understanding of success.
