Driving Purposeful Learning and Improvement

As the Foundation approaches its sunset in 2020, we are committed to sharing knowledge generated through our investments.

This page features evaluations supporting our STEM grantmaking. By capturing successes as well as lessons learned, and disseminating this knowledge to relevant audiences, the Foundation seeks to support broad, sustainable change. Evaluation can lead to stronger policy and practice, enabling organizations to continue to achieve results long after we spend down.
