Since the Fund for Public Health in New York, Inc. (FPHNY) was incorporated in 2002, this nonprofit has managed a high profile federal grant as well as other important grants for the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene that address pressing public health needs. Entering into a new phase in their development, the FPHNY is looking to establish its unique value in the NYC public health landscape. The Capstone team conducted an organizational assessment and an environmental analysis to develop strategic recommendations for the next three years. The report identifies key strategies in three areas: strengthening current operations, ensuring financial viability, and carving a niche in NYC. The report also includes an analysis of fundraising trends.
