Here’s what we’ve been reading and watching over the past few weeks.
Susan Wolf Ditkoff, Stanford Social Innovation Review, December 6, 2013
“Mario Marino, author of Leap of Reason, discusses funder pitfalls in setting and measuring goals for grantees.”
Bill Ryan and Barbara Taylor, Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, September, 2013
A highly readable report on how the Clark Foundation supports its grantees to improve their performance and how the foundation assesses its own performance.
Bill Shore, Darell Hammond, and Amy Celep, Stanford Social Innovation Review, Fall 2013
An instructive account of the parallel journeys of Share Our Strength and KaBOOM! toward system-level impact, which we’ve watched with admiration over the years.
