What is the value of membership associations and support organizations serving philanthropy? The report Infrastructure in Focus: A Global Picture of Organizations Serving Philanthropy identified four categories for the main benefits of philanthropy support organizations: capacity, capability, connection, and credentials.  They can be considered a starting point for constructing a framework to assess the value of infrastructure organizations. Developing such an evaluative framework would enable the field of infrastructure support to measure effectiveness, strengths and weaknesses.

 

This peer learning event will explore how to develop this evaluative framework.  This work will be highly participatory, based on the experiences and knowledge of network members, as the aim is to provide a tool from the field for the field.   This is a kick-off peer learning workshop that will start an 18 month process, leading to the development of the evaluation framework - which will include a set of indicators and a self-assessment tool.  It is envisaged that a core group will drive this with a larger group convening one or two more times.  The initial workshop will involve:

  • a presentation and discussion on the 4Cs Framework, facilitated by Barry Knight;
  • input from participants in order to share knowledge and experience relating to self-evaluation;
  • consideration of a draft self-assessment framework; and
  • identification of the core group and next steps.
