Transforming Knowledge into Change

Evaluating Public Policy Grantmaking: A Resource for Funders

This publication asserts that funders can determine appropriate performance measures by identifying the incremental steps that lead to policy change. The author argues that many factors necessary for policy change can be measured quantitatively and/or qualitatively, including civic participation, public perceptions, community networks, policymaker support, and organizational capacity. The report also asks funders to bear in mind that while a particular policy objective may not have been achieved, their support may have laid the groundwork for future victories.
