• Description

This report, funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, provides a four-part framework for measuring the progress of civic media—network building, holding space for discussion, distributing ownership and persistent input. It offers recommendations for funders and practitioners alike, including the recommendation that funders adequately fund impact evaluation by "build[ing] capacity of grantees to use qualitative evaluation frameworks and hold[ing] them accountable for regular updates."
