While many details remain to be determined, a good rule of thumb is that approximately 5% of a foundation’s assets are spent yearly in support of its mission.  It’s anticipated that would result in many tens of millions invested annually.  The potential impact of the Dogwood Health Trustwill be transformational for our region since it will provide significant resources to address the root causes of poor health status.  There is no specific approach defined at this time with respect to “large” or “small” projects, just an emphasis on impact.
