Creating greater impact in grant-making: Listening to the voice of the beneficiary

Event Details
  • June 25th, Tuesday, 2:45pm - 4:15pm
  • Room 326

Many funders and grantmakers overlook a critical source of insight into the relevance and impact of their work — the people they are ultimately seeking to help. How do they experience non-profit programmes and services? Is there positive impact being created and are their needs being met? This session will offer insights from the first international pilot of Listen4Good started in Asia this year with Lord Mayors Foundation in Australia and Expedia in Singapore. The session will also explore how the feedback loops in this project challenge inherent power dynamics and includes in the panel the voices of those least heard at the decision-making table.

Key Takeaways

  • Funders and grant-makers need to use effective listening to bring the voice of the beneficiary and lived experiences into their funding strategies and decision-making processes
  • Feedback loops are important data sources for effective non-profit programme design
  • Fund for Shared Insight provides a case study on how feedback loops can be effectively put in place in Asia
