Presentation from 9/11/18 Grants Managers Learning Network Program: The Data Transformation of Philanthropy
For philanthropy to advance equity in all communities, especially low-income communities and communities of color, it needs to be able to understand the demographics of the organizations being funded (and declined), the people being served and the communities impacted. That data should be used to assess practices and drive decision making.
The report shares data on crucial topics such as foundations’ evaluation staffing and structures, investment in evaluation work, and the usefulness of evaluation information. It seeks to provide benchmarking data that will be useful to foundation leaders as they seek to better understand the choices of their peers and think more deeply about their own evaluation goals and strategies.
This publication from Grantmakers for Effective Organizations offers a framework for thinking about how to measure progress and results in place-based and community change initiatives.
This workbook from Idealware and NTEN addresses the disconnect between the tactical work of collecting and tracking data and the strategic work of defining and using the data for the organization's mission.
