The Ian Potter Foundation continues to review its own grantmaking practices and processes. When reviewing our grants, our Research & Evaluation Manager compiles examples of what works, what doesn't and areas where further improvements can be made.
The Foundation is now sharing these distilled lessons from over 1000 Science, Medical Research, Health & Disability, Education, Arts, Community Wellbeing and Environment & Conservation grants acquitted by The Ian Potter Foundation between 2009 and 2019.
Our learnings can be downloaded below. They are organised by timeframe (‘before’, ‘during’ and ‘after’ the grant) and grouped by themes. This document will be updated annually.
There are also several articles by Dr Squirrel Main, Research & Evaluation Manager, which summarise the Foundation's learnings to date.
- Measuring Up
- Know Thy Impact
- Have you got global goals?
- The shape of due diligence
- The future of evaluation
