In September 2016 basis.point commissioned an independent evaluation by Genio, an established independent body, to measure the impact of their first two grants. The First Grants Evaluation and Impact Report (December 2016 looks at areas including the evaluation findings, learning from grantees and recommendations and the results are very positive.
In particular the evaluation found that –
the basis.point strategy, of funding well-established organisations, implementing evidence-based interventions with high fidelity, has produced a high level of impact in a short space of time with a relatively modest amount of funding.
This is a sound investment strategy which yields high impact relatively quickly”.
We’d like to thank Archways and ELI for their cooperation and for generously giving their time and knowledge to Genio during the evaluation process.
