GRI, a community foundation, is a valued convenor with connections to leaders working on recovery in the research community, the federal government, associations of nonprofits in the recovery field, and the pop culture world.
GRI seeks to:
Convene researchers and other thought leaders in recovery and identify issues from our gatherings that will progress thinking and knowledge about actions that advance the field of recovery.
Engage large institutional, corporate, and major donors to raise money to match the public funding of an AmeriCorps deployment of Recovery Corps members to grow the infrastructure and service capacity of local non-profits doing recovery work.
Build an endowment, and support donor-advised funds to increase private funding of innovative and science-based recovery services through a General Support Grants Program that will fund community-based organizations providing recovery support services.
