Ask the Trustees
Q: Your website says the LEAP (Linking Evidence and Practice) program is not open now. When will you begin accepting new applications?
A: Through LEAP we were pleased to be able to support initiatives by other organizations whose mission is aligned with that of Donaghue. These awards were modest, usually about $5,000, and we devoted over $94,000 to LEAP since 2014. We suspended that program in July with no planned date to re-open it. We decided to do this so we could use those funds to more directly reinforce and assist the work of our grantees. For example, we’re working with AAMC to host a conversation among researchers and electronic medical record vendors and other experts focused on enhancing EHR capabilities to drive clinical and population health. Stay tuned for descriptions of this and other activities.
