The Ian Potter Foundation Evaluators Pool - open for submission

< Back

We are issuing our annual call for evaluators interested in being listed in The Ian Potter Foundation’s Evaluator Pool (TIPFEP). We use TIPFEP to recommend evaluators to our grantees with the objective of producing high-quality evaluation reports that will lead to projects leveraging ongoing funding (from government, social enterprise or other foundations).

Since 1964, The Ian Potter Foundation has contributed over $355 million to thousands of projects that respond decisively to key issues and develop our creativity and capacity as a nation.

Based in Melbourne, the Foundation makes grants nationally to support charitable organisations that encompass a broad range of endeavours, including:

  • Vibrant (arts)
  • Fair (e.g. employment for marginalised youth/people with disabilities and early childhood development)
  • Sustainable (biodiversity, land and water management)
  • Healthy (population-level health research and medical research equipment)

To learn more about the Foundation’s work please take a look at specific program areas under What We Support and the featured case studies on this website.

While each program area has its own grantmaking priorities and objectives, the Foundation’s general principles are to fund prevention rather than a cure and to support and encourage excellence. We also look for innovative solutions and ideas and assess the long-term sustainability of the projects we support.

As such, many of the projects that we fund are evaluated, and often grantees approach us inquiring about suitable evaluators. To this end, we are issuing our annual call for evaluators interested in being listed in The Ian Potter Foundation’s Evaluator Pool (TIPFEP). We use TIPFEP to recommend evaluators to our grantees with the objective of producing high-quality evaluation reports that will lead to projects leveraging ongoing funding (from government, social enterprise or other foundations). While we welcome applications across all our areas, current needs are particularly high for Indigenous-led evaluations.

Ultimately, we may ask grantees to use only TIPFEP evaluators, but at this point, we simply wish to be able to make recommendations.

If you are interested in submitting your details for inclusion in the 2021 TIPFEP Evaluator's Pool, please follow these instructions and submit by the deadline.  

If you are already on TIPFEP, you will receive a proforma email enquiring about your interest in re-applying. As the quality of applications improves from year to year, prior applications will be re-assessed against the current submissions.

Deadline: Thursday, 1 April 2021, 4:59 pm AEST (please note our server allows emails up to a maximum of 10Mb. Dropbox is an option). This is a hard deadline.

The 2021 TIPFEP list will be announced by 3 June 2021. Limited feedback may be provided upon request, and evaluators whose work is not chosen in 2021 are welcome to re-apply with new material in subsequent years.
