The Solutions Project funds and supports organizations that create thriving communities powered by clean energy. In early 2018, Frontline Solutions completed the first annual evaluation cycle for Solutions Project’s grantmaking. Frontline launched the engagement by facilitating a series of four co-working sessions with the Solutions Project team to design an evaluation framework. Using indicators outlined in the framework, Frontline conducted a third-party evaluation to measure the effectiveness of Solutions Project’s grantmaking process as well as grantee partner satisfaction. Frontline analyzed data collected from grantee proposals, reporting processes, and timestamps recorded in Solutions Project’s internal systems. Frontline also conducted surveys and interviews with Solutions Project grantee partners, staff, philanthropic trustees, and peer funders. Learnings were synthesized into a summary report that outlines recommendations for Solutions Project’s grantmaking moving forward. Frontline now leads an annual evaluation cycle for Solutions Project to support its accountability in grantmaking.
