Impact and Learning

Goals

 

We live in a VUCA world where the key is to be agile, adapt to new conditions, and leverage your own experience and the experience of others for constant growth. Work methods and organizational models emerge, gain momentum and rapidly become obsolete. Understanding of what is useful from a huge stream of information can be challenging even for those who consider themselves experts in their field.


Over the 20 years of its existence, the Foundation, its partners and grantees have accumulated a unique knowledge base. Together, we want to conceptualize this experience and make it accessible to all who can benefit from it. By collecting the most successful practices, analyzing project outcomes and receiving constant feedback from members of the Foundation community to develop and help implement new practical tools for the development of education, culture, and philanthropy of the future.

 

Opportunities

Imagine that all successful practices and project outcomes will be available to study, and the experience of the Foundation, its partners and the authors of projects will be systematized and represented in an accessible form, which can be accessed by any organization from anywhere in the country or used at home. Such a knowledge base will help determine the strategic development directions within the framework of the Foundation's programs and beyond. The authors and users of the base will be able to find ideas for interdisciplinary, intersectoral and interregional partnerships.

 

 

Our objectives

  • Organize and digitize the Foundation's granting activities: competitions, expertise, and support of projects, interaction with partners and beneficiaries, analysis of reports, etc.

  • Conduct research and analyze the outcomes and long-term effects of the Foundation's programs and supported projects.

  • Study successful practices related to supported projects, program areas, and current trends in the development of these areas in Russia and abroad.

  • Set up a feedback loop within the Foundation community.

  • Establish the transfer of accumulated knowledge within the Foundation team and its partners through trainings, workshops, a mentoring system and the creation of libraries.

  • Publish and disseminate information, analytical research materials and methodological recommendations on topics related to the Foundation's activities.

  • Develop the skills and competencies of the Foundation's community members through professional forums, conferences, and other events.

 

Expected outcomes

These steps form a path to equal opportunities, effective strategies and more relevant initiatives. And to more sustainable long-term outcomes of supported projects. The constant analysis of feedback will help us to build individualized expert and informational support for each project.

 

Our knowledge library will contain up-to-date models and tools available for replication and scaling up to a wider circle of organizations and professionals. The informal community of beneficiaries, which we call the Ecosystem of the Foundation, will develop independently through knowledge sharing, mentoring and interdisciplinary partnerships.
