2016 Great Apes Evaluation Report

August 1, 2017

The overall goal of the Arcus Great Ape Program (GAP) is to achieve conservation and respect for great apes and gibbons. The foundation tracks and assesses the progress and effects of the Great Ape Program through a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system that enables it to gather and analyze data from a variety of sources—grantees, conservationists in the field and in academic research settings, and relevant databases—to measure progress along specific indicators and milestones to assess the status of goals, outcomes, and targets. The 2016 Monitoring and Evaluation report presents the program's progress against baselines set in 2010;highlights important issues that will inform and shape broader strategy of GAP; and provides a indication of impact since the previous 2013 evaluation and 2010 baselines.

A Holistic Approach to Funding Women Environmental Defenders

April 2, 2024

Women environmental defenders are often at the forefront of protecting biodiversity, ensuring food security and sovereignty, and advancing the rights of local communities against environmental injustices caused by extractivism. However, they bear a disproportionate burden of harm due to systems of patriarchy and entrenched gender roles. WEDs face grave risks of retaliation, including gender-based violence, physical assault, psychological abuse, kidnapping, intimidation, false legal charges, defamation, and criminalization, yet they are often working for communal wellbeing. As noted by one of Global Greengrants Fund's advisors, "Organizations led by men often end up negotiating with corporations for material benefits, yet in the case of women, this doesn't happen because the health and security of families and communities aren't for sale."WEDs are powerful solution-holders because they recognize a holistic approach is crucial for building a better future now, and for generations to come. The climate crisis connects all of our fates, and our response as funders should likewise come from a connected and intersectional understanding. We must broadly support the WEDs who are bravely resisting the systems of oppression that created the crisis. This report compiles recommendations and practical steps for environmental justice funders to move from understanding towards action.

How Philanthropic Collaboratives Measure, Evaluate, and Learn

February 22, 2024

In this article, we shine a light on promising practices for how philanthropic collaboratives can effectively measure, evaluate, and learn in pursuit of greater impact. This article is based on two dozen interviews with collaborative leaders (plus informal conversations with dozens more), donors, grantees, and measurement experts;2 our survey research over the past three years, including nearly 280 philanthropic collaboratives; a review of publicly available reports from over 50 collaboratives; and a review of philanthropy measurement literature, such as Grantmakers for Effective Organizations' Shifting the Evaluation Paradigm: The Equitable Evaluation Framework and Co-Impact's Learning, Measurement, and Evaluation Guidebook. For this research, we defined collaboratives as entities that either pool or channel resources from multiple donors to nonprofits; we call them "collaboratives" and "collaborative funds" in this report, and occasionally refer to them as "funds" or "platforms" in other publications.

In this together: Combining individual and collective strategies to confront data power

December 1, 2023

This think piece, titled "In this together: combining individual and collective strategies to confront data power" results from discussions between four advocacy organizations, Aapti Institute, Connected by Data, Datasphere initiative, and MyData Global, working to improve how data is governed.Common ambiguities in how individuals, groups, rights, protections, control, and personal data are discussed can create the impression of advocacy groups pulling in different directions and working on separate agendas. This paper however, argues that individual and collective approaches for data governance should be seen as complementary: both addressing particular challenges within the status quo.
