Grant Support and Technical Assistance

Measure4Change provides two years of grant support and one-on-one, intensive technical assistance for competitively selected local nonprofits. The grantees use their funds and technical assistance to build a robust performance measurement system.  The technical assistance is guided by a curriculum but is tailored to meet the individual needs of each nonprofit.

​The pilot cohort of grantees were the following: 

  • Cornerstones Inc.: Provides support and advocacy for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare, and other human services.
  • DC Scores: Provides after-school programming to build self-expression, physical fitness, and a sense of community for students through an innovative combination of soccer, poetry, and service-learning.
  • Horton’s Kids: Provides academic support, enrichment, and basic needs services to children and has a Community Resource Center in Anacostia.
  • Martha’s Table: Provides year-round early education, out-of-school-time programs for children, and comprehensive child and family success services such as healthy meals and groceries, clothing, and referrals.
