IssueLab Results Sharing knowledge to strengthen the social sector
IssueLab Results is part of Foundation Center's #OpenForGood campaign, a combined effort that encourages foundations to more openly share what they are learning, so that others can more easily build on it.
The Results collection shares IssueLab's larger mission, of collecting and openly sharing social sector research, but with a special focus on evaluations. Again and again we have heard from foundations that some of the information they value most is about "what has, and hasn't worked". And yet, this is the knowledge they themselves are most reluctant to share openly. (See the excellent report from CEP on this issue.) For this reason, we built and launched IssueLab Results, with the support of the Fund for Shared Insight.
This collection and set of companion tools is a place for foundations and nonprofits to share funded evaluations and to access the lessons of their peers and colleagues.
