GreenFaith

GreenFaith is a faith-based environmental organization whose mission is to "inspire, educate and mobilize people of diverse religious backgrounds for environmental leadership." Their rubric explores what success looks like in many areas of "greening" churches, mosques, and synagogues -- from worship services to facilities to religious education to investment practices.  The rubric was a stepping stone to the creation of the nation's first interfaith environmental certification program.

Dodge Rubric

The program directors at The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation set out to write a rubric on one of their core performances -- the site visit. (See pages 88-95 in The Social Profit Handbook.)  What began as one rubric quickly became three: one on preparation; one on the site visit itself; and one on follow-up.

The next-to-highest level of the rubric is named after a core value of the Foundation: Respect for Grantees.  And the top of the rubric is called: Our Goal: Exceeding the Standard. From the book: "We were conducting a very personal style of philanthropy. It is the kind you can do if you are rooted in place ... and you have many long-standing relationships with grantees."
