The field of philanthropy is adept at planning grantmaking programs that are designed to address defined issues and can include components, phases, evaluations and other facets that strategically promote our respective missions. But what about the unforeseen? How can funders respond effectively and quickly to emerging issues? For The California Wellness Foundation (TCWF), these answers are often found in the world of public health. With grantmaking dollars set aside for special projects, the founation is able to pivot quickly in pursuit of our mission to improve the health of the people of California. TCWF's Annual Report 2012 also provides an update on the Foundation's activities for the year, financial statements and a list of the year's grants.
