By David Devlin-Foltz, Susanna Dilliplane, Rhonda Schlangen, Julie Tumbo, and Coumba Touré
This is the final report of a five-year developmental evaluation of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation’s efforts to shift power in its grantmaking ecosystem. Starting in 2016, the Foundation introduced a strategy grounded in a set of five principles intended to encourage a shift in power towards local CSOs and to strengthen CSOs’ capacity to advocate. This report is part of a five-year learning process led by the Aspen Institute’s Aspen Planning and Evaluation Program, explores whether and how practices aligned with the principles contributed to the intended outcomes of shifting power towards CSOs and strengthening their organizational and advocacy capacity.
