ArcelorMittal USA has announced that 14 nonprofit partners will receive funding support totaling $325,000 as part of the company’s special community investment program, “Building Resilience: Investing in Nonprofit Sustainability.”
Launched in 2017 as a pilot program, the Building Resilience program extends ArcelorMittal’s corporate giving strategy to focus on the sustainability and resiliency of its existing nonprofit partners. The program invests in areas of nonprofit management that are traditionally underfunded by foundations and corporations yet could have a significant impact on the long-term sustainability of the nonprofit.
ArcelorMittal’s support will build the capacity of the Brandywine Health Foundation to integrate community-based participation practices into its communications strategy plan, gather ongoing community feedback, and promote the final board-approved 2019-2022 strategic plan.
For the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance, the grant will fund the identification and implementation of a new contact management software, a constituent survey to assess how its programs can be improved, and a mini-marketing campaign to educate the community about its mission and improved technological infrastructure.
“When selecting our nonprofit partners for the Building Resilience initiative, we look for projects that are transformative for the nonprofit organization, as well as the greater community,” said Beth Spurgeon, executive director of the ArcelorMittal USA Foundation.
