A Profile of the Einhorn Family Charitable Trust

Perhaps the most notable aspect of the Einhorn Family Charitable Trust’s story is the organization’s relative youth. The trustees hired their first full-time staff member only 10 years ago. In that short time, EFCT has surged to the front of the pack when it comes to supporting grantees to pursue higher performance. If you’re a funder, have you asked your grantees what they need to get the job done for those they serve? Are you thinking about their ability to perform well over the long term—or just their ability to conduct projects over the short term? What more could you do to help your grantees build their core organizational muscles so they can create the greatest possible impact in your community?
