As a funder or grant maker, the more you learn about the charities or individuals you support the more impact your investment can make.
It can be difficult to generate meaningful learning across a large portfolio of disparate projects and even with a small portfolio there is always diversity in approaches and data.
Renaisi supports funders, trusts and foundations to get closer to their work, to translate learning into useable information, and to make better decisions as a result.
Questions and ideas
We’re interested in exploring:
- What difference can a place-based funding approach make to charities’ ability to make a difference?
- How should funders respond to continued cuts in public sector funding and the changing nature of relationships between the public and private sectors?
- How can funders support charities beyond the provision of funds?
- How can funders put their learning and evaluation to best use in the long term?
