Regional Association of Grantmakers: Measuring Philanthropy's Effectiveness
Grantmakers are increasingly grappling with questions of what exactly has been accomplished with their funds, what impact the programs they have funded have had on social problems, and how their limited resources can be allocated to achieve the best results. RAGs, too, need to better understand and demonstrate their own impact. The Forum of RAGs works to enable RAGs to become resources for their members and regions on assessing and understanding the effectiveness and the impact of philanthropy.
