Since its founding in 1963, the Bruner Foundation has been known for innovative thinking about complex social issues, and for its ongoing commitment to meaningful social change.
Since 1996 the Bruner Foundation has focused on initiatives and partnerships that seek to increase effectiveness in the non-profit service delivery sector by strengthening internal evaluation capacity, by increasing the use of evaluative thinking in a wide range of organizational areas and ultimately, by building sustainable organizational evaluative capacity – the combining of evaluation skills with evaluative thinking.
The Foundation believes that organizations that have and use evaluative capacity are better able to serve their clients and deliver on their missions.
The Foundation works directly with grantees as well as contributes to the field of evaluation and effectiveness by providing resources for use by both grantmakers and grantees.
