September 30, 2010; Source: Public News Service | The Committee for Responsive Philanthropy is making the rounds in the Northwest right now, talking to nonprofits and funders about the measurable effectiveness of advocacy grants – and has just completed a report on the topic. The finding of the study, according to NCRP, is that in Idaho for every $1 spent, $150 in value is created. The Northwest report, covering Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Wyoming, looks at a few successful advocacy projects in each of these states. The effectiveness of these kinds of grants – the return on investment – is being measured by their effect on better wages, living conditions and expanded services. —Ruth McCambridge
