Transforming Knowledge into Change

Power, Participation, and State-based Politics: An Evaluation of the Ford Foundation's Collaborations that Count Initiative

The Applied Research Center (ARC) conducted a two-year participatory evaluation to provide an account of the Ford Foundation's "Collaborations That Count Initiative." The report identifies areas in which the 11 statewide collaborations succeeded, and draws attention to ways in which support to collaboration might be more effectively provided in the future.
Regarding advocacy evaluation, the reporters based their data collection and reporting around six variables: Prior Relationships; Political Vision; Power Dynamics; Internal Process; Campaign Strategy and Leadership; and Stages of Collaborative Development. The report categorized outcomes into three categories: Infrastructural Outcomes; Developmental Outcomes; and Policy Reforms.
