GHR Foundation applies entrepreneurial creativity and universal catholic values to foster hope and opportunity where it is needed most. Started in 1965 by Opus founders Gerald A. and Henrietta Rauenhorst, the Foundation seeks transformational change in health, education and global development, and partners with the world’s experts to achieve impact. This results in a powerful exchange of ideas and a community of thought leaders providing locally-driven solutions. Despite global challenges, GHR Foundation meets each task with entrepreneurial optimism because the Foundation has seen the impact of strategic, thoughtful change.

CRS and GHR Foundation have a longstanding partnership based on a mutual focus on sustainable impact at the local level. With GHR’s support, CRS has created the Institute for Capacity Strengthening---and other key initiatives---that seek to build the capacity of those engaged in global development. GHR grantmaking has provided the resources for CRS to experiment and work in innovative ways with the communities around the world. We hope those who take advantage of the Institute will contribute to mutual learning and exchange of ideas that will advance global development efforts.
