Coaching & Technical Assistance

Building skills and capacities in the Rx network

In 2020 the Rx Foundation made funds available to support training opportunities for members of the Rx Advocacy Partners Network, and connected partners directly with several technical assistance organizations. In 2021 we launched the Targeted Coaching program, which includes funding and introductions to a roster of coaches and technical assistance providers who were ready and willing to engage. This optional program gives grant partners a boost to focus on goals that they might not have articulated in their original proposals, and to meet coaches who were not already known to them. In the first year of the program, leaders and teams in the program worked on skills and issues including power analysis, building more effective teams, state-level health policy and text-based messaging outreach.

MOVE and PowerLabs: coaching to build more effective teams

Three organizations in the Building Capacity for Health Advocacy program worked with PowerLabs in 2021 and 2022, including Missouri Organizing and Voter Engagement Collaborative.


My team has found the coaching support so deeply valuable. I don’t think we would have found it on our own, and more than that, I don’t think I would have expended the amount of funding necessary to work with Randall Smith of PowerLabs without the Rx Foundation…Some of the learnings entirely re-defined how we ran our deep canvassing pilot program. We wouldn’t have had that without the Rx Foundation making the connection for us.
