Foundations and other philanthropic organizations are a critical piece in the landscape of social-sector organizations. They fulfill a wide range of functions, and to be as effective as possible, they must answer a number of critical questions:
How can we ensure that our efforts significantly improve the lives of those benefited while reaching the largest number of beneficiaries?
How can we measure and track the social impact generated by our interventions on an ongoing basis?
Can we assess different types of potential interventions to determine which would have the greatest impact?
How can we attract and retain talent?
Working with these organizations, we draw on our broad experience with many large foundations and leverage our work with corporations, nongovernmental organizations, governments, and intergovernmental organizations. A strong network of experts around the world gives BCG a global perspective while also bringing local knowledge to our clients.More
