Funder Program Strategy

AEC collaborators have significant experience evaluating foundation and donor  program strategies, specifically in areas of  advocacy, community organizing and development, and movement building work.

We have experience with:

  • Summative and retrospective  evaluations of program strategies with the goal of strengthening understanding of complex social change work, and assembling lessons learned for future funding efforts.
  • Formative and developmental evaluations of ongoing programming, to inform and strengthen planning.
  • Specific experience with evaluation of network and coalition building, and advocacy and policy change work.
  • Evaluation of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Tobacco Policy Change program
  • Evaluation of the Media Justice Fund of the Funding Exchange. A Ford Foundation intermediary fund to support media and communications activism around the U.S. [check description]
  • Evaluation of the Progressive Technology Projects Innovation and Partnership Project.
