Using Evaluation to Improve Social Impacts of Current and Future Impact Investments
Presented in partnership with the American Evaluation Association’s Social Impact Measurement working group, the Johnson Center for Philanthropy, the Council of Michigan Foundations, and the Mission Investors Exchange
This third and final installment of the “Evaluation and Impact Investing” webinar series highlights the ways in which evaluators can use their skills to help investors at the end of an investment, including how to recalibrate their investments and identifying the social impacts to be measured in future investments.
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation and its third-party evaluator, KKS Advisors, will discuss the recent evaluation of WKKF’s Mission Driven Investing (MDI) portfolio, how it is being used to both look back and to look forward, and the role of KKS Advisors in the evaluation. The Johnson Center’s Jason Franklin will address how individual and non-foundation institutional investors use and can better use evaluators in determining social impacts at the close of an investment.
