We believe that learning is a collective effort, and that to be effective it’s important to explore what has and hasn’t worked. That’s why we support those we fund to collect, share and use evidence, to test new approaches and to evaluate and improve their practice. This, in turn, helps us to understand more about the work that we fund, and to analyse and make informed decisions about our approach to grant-making.

To create a reciprocal environment of knowledge exchange and to support a transparent approach to philanthropy, we too examine our own work and share key findings from our grant-making and research that we feel will be useful to others.

Review of UK Grant-making 2021

This review is a chance to share what we have learnt through our UK grant-making in the context of the challenges of Covid-19, and to tell some of the inspiring stories of the organisations and individuals we have supported. This work will inform our thinking about how best to support grantees to respond to the ongoing challenges, and develop our grant-making practice.
