Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

Exploration of Joint Project by Three Compassionate Care Organizations

Planetree, the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare and the Arnold P. Gold Foundation, three organizations with similar missions focused on compassionate, patient-centric humanistic healthcare, came together to explore creating a tool for the sector to evaluate the level of compassionate care being provided – the Compassionate Quotient (CQ) project. The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund supported the cost of a consultant to facilitate the exploration.
