| Family Care Foundation, an international not-for-profit charity|
The Family Care Foundation network has developed through our identifying smaller, successful organizations to partner with. This arrangement helps achieve our mission while providing our partner the potential to build capacity. Working in joint venture partnerships that strengthen global grassroots philanthropy and its leadership allows this approach to best leverage the resources entrusted to our care.
Family Care Foundation provides for our Project Partner Managers a support network, information disbursement, education, training, capacity building, technical assistance, and seed funds. We also provide monitoring, evaluation, and grant administration as an intermediary for US-based funders.
By drawing on a wide range of training, educational, and advocacy resources, as well as networking with other agencies, the yield is fruitful partnerships and collaborations on both the operational, as well as the funding level, with a diverse array of partner agencies and individuals. We coordinate similar programs on a global level, identify and share best practices among Project Partner Managers, market global needs, obtain donor support, and coordinate required and appropriate reporting.
Our programs build on the extensive experience and broad network of our local Project Partner Managers who have years of hands-on experience in humanitarian and/or missionary work. Many are citizens of the nations they serve and/or have extensive experience in their respective countries, are fluent in the local language, knowledgeable of the local culture, and have broad, enthusiastic support from government agencies, businesses, and donors. The fact that FCF Partner Projects tend to enjoy strong links and relationships with a host of government officials, private businesses, and influential individuals, has helped earn Family Care Foundation a proven track record for implementing change in the communities we serve.
While Helping Hands Korea is no longer a project partner of FCF, and operates as its own independent NGO, we view our previous partnership as a building block in our role of incubating effective philanthropic ideas and entrepreneurial leadership.
Notes executive director Larry Corley, "We like to think that Family Care Foundation functions like a well-oiled machine, whereby FCF's partner projects have found effective ways to take charity dollars and put them to work where it really matters -- helping people."
