The Art and Science of Place-Based Philanthropy: Themes from a National Convening

FSG managing director Hallie Preskill recently co-authored an article on new trends in place-based philanthropy.

The Foundation Review article “The Art and Science of Place-Based Philanthropy: Themes from a National Convening” is based on reflections from a meeting of funders, evaluators, and community partners who shared effective learning practices and discussed the role of evaluation in place-based work.

Key topics include:

  • How funders and their investments in evaluation can support the success of place-based efforts
  • How to incorporate approaches that are nimble and responsive to the changing needs of an initiative’s lifespan
  • Place-based initiatives through the lens of systems change
  • What funders should look for in a place-based evaluator
