The Grantmaking Tango: Issues for funders – Julia Unwin

While funders naturally want to know what impact their funds are having, organizations run the risk of becoming too closely identified with funders’ needs and so losing touch with their mission, argues a new report from the Baring Foundation. The author, policy adviser to the Foundation, also suggests that a ‘number crunching’ approach to grantmaking is inappropriate since social action and social change do not lend themselves to statistical measurement. She challenges grantmakers to think more clearly about how and why they fund and offers some simple frameworks to aid this.
