Children's Health Coverage in Florida: Fewer Uninsured But Challenges Lie Ahead

A newly released FPN educational brief explores children's health coverage in Florida. Florida's rate of uninsured children has declined in recent years, though it remains considerably higher than that of the nation and other southeastern states. This encouraging trend could be disrupted, however, by policy decisions in 2015 that could negatively impact as many as 400,000 children. The brief was authored by Joan Alker, executive director of the Center for Children and Families at the Georgetown University Policy Institute, and was commissioned by FPN and our Florida Health Funders member affinity group.  [Download Brief | View Webinar | Read Blog]

FPN Webinar: Lessons Learned for Holding a Successful Give Day Campaign

As philanthropy continues to innovate, online fundraising is emerging as a top trend across the field. Specifically, Give Day campaigns, a limited time period of online giving, usually 24 hours, are evolving as common ways to engage first-time donors, raise money and promote philanthropy in communities across the United States. During this FPN member webinar we learned from Florida community foundations about their Give Day experiences. The panel, with representatives from three Florida community foundations, discussed both the challenges and wins associated with planning, organizing and implementing an effective Give Day campaign.  [View Webinar]
