Helping Foundations Analyze their Funding Patterns
We review proposals and reports from funded projects over a given period of time, helping grant makers analyze their funding patterns. We also help grantmakers create application formats that yield stronger proposals from potential grantees.
We help answer several questions:
Is the funding pattern of the foundation true to its mission?
In given funding areas, is the foundation investing in programs that use best practices?
Are there particular kinds of projects in each funded area that are neglected or overly favored by the foundation?
Which of the foundation's funded projects are more and less successful?
To maximize its contribution in a given area of funding, what new projects might the foundation consider?
