Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

  • We believe that creativity generates solutions. We support both traditional and innovative solutions to healthcare dilemmas in any form – concepts to test, best practices to implement, efficiencies to execute, equipment to employ and successes to replicate.
  • We believe that innovative solutions flourish and are sustained in strong nonprofits. Strong nonprofits need solid leadership and the organizational capacity to plan, implement and assess their programs. We consider grants to build organizational capacity for the county’s healthcare nonprofits.
  • We believe that strong nonprofits exercise responsible stewardship. Responsible stewards aim for sustainability by raising and managing sufficient funds, operating cost effectively, and leveraging all manner of resources and relationships.
  • We believe that responsible stewards are accountable. Accountability is demonstrated through leadership integrity and competence, responsiveness to consumers, transparency, and systematic efforts to track meaningful results.
  • We believe that the Healthcare Initiative Foundation and our grantee partners are accountable to the residents of Montgomery County, Maryland for improving healthcare in our community.
