Program areas at TPC

Tipping Point's program team conducts an average of 100 hours of due diligence per organization before writing a check. We look for strong leadership, clean financial statements and a demonstrated willingness to measure outcomes. Once an organization is in the portfolio, we renew general operating grants on an annual basis so long as there is progress toward mutually agreed upon goals. We use a mix of pro bono and contracted services from our partners, targeted trainings, and staff advice and expertise to support grantees beyond dollars to increase their impact in the fight against poverty. Additionally, we collaborate regionally and across sectors to change systems and bring the most effective interventions to more people.
