Private Grantmaking Foundations
Mission: The Virtue Foundation mission is to increase awareness, inspire action and render assistance through healthcare, education, justice and empowerment initiatives. Comprised primarily of volunteers, Virtue Foundation is guided by the principle that true global change must begin within each of us – one person at a time, one act at a time.
Virtue’s innovative model of sustainable development includes five guiding principles:
Invest in local women leaders as agents of change to sponsor development projects.
Create collaborative models among local and international organizations to maximize efficiency and impact.
Collaborate with local leaders, NGOs, and other global partners to map specific evidence-based interventions through interdisciplinary research and analysis.
Build capacity and train local professionals in and through evidence-based, high-impact service delivery.
Facilitate public-private partnerships to create and implement appropriate and sustainable solutions for development.

I am a medical director at a federally qualified health center which
serves as a safety net for disenfranchised at
risk populations at one of the largest health centers
in Brooklyn, New York. I also function as the research director for
the outpatient network. My volunteer efforts with
Virtue Foundation has provided me with the opportunity
to assist in developing sustainable health infratructures
for motivated underesourced communities
in need. This experience has been life changing
and possibly indispensible for the international communities
that we have served. The broad and multilayered vision
of Virtue Foundation due to tremendous leadership
and oversight has allowed us to deliver pragmatic and
sustainable interventions that foster community independence
and self direction that is critical for the viability of
long term positive health outcomes for communities in
need. The dedication, humility and devotion
to public service of the volunteers is one of the most compelling
features I have ever witnessed in an organization. I feel
it has been an incredible and life altering experience volunteering
for Virtue Foundation and one of the great highlights of my life that I hope
will only continue.
