This interim report, commissioned by the National Performance Programme builds on new research by New Philanthropy Capital into the communication of results information by charities to funders, and funders’ use of this information. It also focuses on the external support charities receive for monitoring and evaluation and funders’ financial and non-financial assistance for this work.
Results-driven funding is becoming more and more common, which is great news. But charities need support to move from just gathering data to analysing it, so that they can improve not just reporting but their work for beneficiaries as well.
