Research

We develop and commission original research on emerging evaluation questions and challenges. We also ask people doing cutting-edge work to write about their experiences and findings. We publish this work as online and printed briefs, papers, and articles.

Strategic Communications on Advocacy Lessons Learned
We are coordinating a multi-year effort funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies to synthesize and strategically communicate lessons the foundation, its grantees, and other funders have learned across a variety of U.S.-based advocacy efforts. This work, being conducted in collaboration with many others in the advocacy field, is supporting efforts to advance Atlantic’s legacy by helping advocacy funders, practitioners, and evaluators to capitalize on what has been learned about planning, implementing, and evaluating diverse advocacy efforts. The project is running for three years, through 2017.
