The Gosling Foundation works to make the most of its disbursements through strategic expenditures. In directing its resources the Foundation looks to mobilize, inspire and support organizations, programs and projects that are consistent with one or more of the following values and principles:
Use of Effective Learning Practices in formal or non-formal learning.
Leverage the Foundation's support by shifting current expenditures, engaging additional project partners, or including a significant volunteer component. The Foundation is generally not open to supporting ongoing operating or infrastructure costs.
Have Broad Applicability by developing projects and practices that once proven, are of wide relevance, help advance best practice, or can be disseminated to and applied in many communities.
Develop Partnerships and Collaboration around specific projects and challenges, linking when appropriate non-traditional sectors and players so that organizations do together more than they can do on their own.
Include Business Components that generate income to develop self-reliance and establish long-term stability.
