Join the conversation on how philanthropy can work with organizers to define measures of success that move beyond transactional outcomes (how many people support a policy) to capture deeper transformational changes (support for one policy carries over to new issues). Both are essential to building more powerful movements for change, but can be difficult to track and translate in making the case for philanthropic support. Following the presentation, Liberty Hill and others will discuss their experiences of developing and using such metrics to bridge the gap between philanthropy and community organizing.
What is the often-invisible, less quantifiable work of movement building that is important to measure?
How should funders best capture this work in an era of evidence-based giving and the need to show a return on investment?
What are examples and lessons learned from the field?
