©New Philanthropy Capital It’s all about results FundingResultsActivity Capacity/ Resources Risks Results not achieved Effectiveness and success are based on: Results (what we really care about) Risks (inevitable, but manageable) Resources (important, but not the whole story)
©New Philanthropy Capital How do we think about results? Breadth (number of individuals affected) Depth (impact on each individual) Change (tackling causes/systemic change)
©New Philanthropy Capital What if results haven’t been measured? Build up a picture from all available evidence Logical model Demand Research User feedback Evaluations Outcome measurement Similar experience Richness of data Increasing availability
