Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning

As a strategic grantmaker, we rigorously analyze impact and lessons from our strategic initiatives to help inform our own work and that of other stakeholders. Working with external partners—for instance, a university or consultant team—the monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) process informs us of progress and challenges, so we can adjust our projects accordingly and share lessons learned with the sector in real-time. We deliberately embed collective learning into the design of our strategic initiatives, involving grantees who are working toward a shared set of goals and each MEL partner delivering reports and supporting our partners in their work. We also convene annual convenings for each of our initiatives to help grantees learn from each other.
