WEBINAR: Are We Making a Difference in Our Philanthropy?
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
At some point, foundation board and staff members will ask the question – are we making a difference? This webinar is aimed at the needs of small to medium-sized foundations who want to learn more about the impact they and their grant partners are having – but who don’t have the resources for evaluation staff or high-cost evaluation initiatives.
Evaluation efforts to learn about the impact a funder is having can strengthen grantmaking and improve grantee performance.
We’ll outline what evaluation is and isn’t, stress the importance of why funders need to be explicit about what they want to achieve in their grantmaking, and why evaluation is “mission critical” to achieving success for foundations and grantees alike.
The webinar will explore a set of low-cost, high-value tools for evaluation that can be useful to fine-tune proposal review, grantmaking and reporting that incorporates learning, and better engages grant recipients in the process. The discussion will also offer “rules of the road” to guide how funders can use evaluation most productively. Throughout the webinar, we’ll look at examples from actual foundation evaluation efforts using these low-cost, high-value tools.
Presenter: Jeffrey M. Glebocki, Founder & Lead Advisor, Strategy + Action/Philanthropy
