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 2019

This report analyses learning from around 650 grants, from four years of grant-making under the current strategy. A rich data source for grantees, funders and those active in the fields in which PHF operates, the report pulls together emerging challenges, trends and the outcomes being pursued in efforts to advance social justice. This work will inform our thinking about how best to support grantees to respond to the challenges they’ve identified as well as provide the support that is needed to foster innovative practice and grow impact.
