PhilanthropywoRx was founded to fill a space in the philanthropic landscape- perspective on how foundation practice and community aspiration can better align and energize. Rural is our specialty. The founder, Allen Smart, has more than 25 years of experience as a grantmaker, and has lived and worked in both low-income rural and urban communities around the country. Allen has a unique set of experiences that fuel his belief that philanthropy can and should be a key partner in helping communities fulfill their own vision for equity for all. The sweet spot for PhilanthropwoRx is where foundations and communities are committed to minimizing their own barriers in service to a greater public good for all. These services can be in the form of writing and speaking assignments; short term training opportunities and observations, or longer term commitments for strategic check-ins and tune-ups. There is no standard engagement type given the diversity of the philanthropic and community landscapes. Allen is the leading national spokesperson for the effective practice of rural philanthropy. He is a movement builder around "More and Better" rural philanthropy.
