The Foundational Thinking literature review brings together some of the most significant pieces of research, publication and articles focused on the practice of grant-making trusts and foundations from recent years.

These resources are categorised by various tags – such as ‘more than money’, ‘investment’ or ‘measurement and reporting’ – which can help you navigate the site.

We are continuing to add to this resource and hope it serves of benefit to the community of those interested in improving the development of practice in the field. We think it’s probably the first or only open resource of its kind¬†in this area.
