Grants 301: Logic Models and Theory of Change
Session 4 of the Grants 301 Series
While traditional philanthropy focused on funding immediate needs and short-term goals, the practice of philanthropy is taking a turn towards social change. Funders desire to fund change, not charity. In this way, philanthropy can more effectively address issues at their root causes.
Theories of change provide an opportunity for funding organizations to develop and articulate the underlying beliefs and assumptions that guide their philanthropic giving. By connecting to your field’s theory of change, organizations that apply for funding can examine their service delivery and share how these services are critical for producing social change.
In this webinar, presenter Julie Assel, GPC guides participants through the essential elements of theories of change, strategies for tailoring the theories of change to the funders’ missions, and specific questions to guide an organization’s development of a theory of change.
