Shifting the Evaluation Paradigm: The Equitable Evaluation Framework™

This publication provides an overview of the impetus for the Equitable Evaluation Framework™ (EEF) and attempts to document early moments and first steps of engagement with U.S. philanthropic institutions — most often their research, evaluation and learning staff — whom we refer to as foundation partners throughout this publication. The themes shared in this publication surfaced through conversations with a group of foundation staff who have been part of the Equitable Evaluation Project, now referred to as the Equitable Evaluation Initiative (EEI), since 2017 as advisors, investment partners and/or practice partners.

    GEOList Summary: Capacity-Building Consultant Work

    The majority of the consultant proposals organizations have received are for exactly the “up to” amount. I am interested in knowing if this is or has been an issue for others. How has your foundation addressed this issue and what language you have used to eliminate it?

    What Mindset is Needed to Support Collaboration?

    Throughout history, social change has been possible only through the contributions and dedication of many people and organizations connected in tight and loose groups. Recognizing that operating within the confines of a single organization is often insufficient to create widespread, lasting change, grantmakers are adopting a different mindset that helps them see and do their work as part of larger, more diverse and powerful efforts.
