BUILD Health Challenge, de Beaumont Foundation

Success Measures served as learning partner to the de Beaumont Foundation’s BUILD Health Challenge, an initiative supporting innovative multi-sector partnerships working to address important health issues in their communities. Collaborating with BUILD staff, the team co-designed and implemented a national “listening tour” to gather and document input from BUILD’s partners and past awardees—including community-based organizations, healthcare and public health departments, and philanthropy—to inform how future BUILD efforts can better incorporate community voices with lived experience and strategies addressing health and racial equity. Insights and themes developed by the Success Measures team from the listening tour were incorporated into BUILD’s final report. To delve further into these insights, BUILD collaborated with Success Measures to organize a series of Conversations on Racial Equity intended to actively involve BUILD alumni awardees in defining their own understanding of racial equity and racial justice, specifically within the framework of BUILD.
