Our participatory grantmaking alters the traditional process of philanthropic giving by empowering service providers and community-based organizations to define the strategy around a specific issue area or population.
Rebuilding Community Infrastructure (Rebuild) is a program that will invest hundreds of millions of dollars to revitalize neighborhood parks, recreation centers, playgrounds, and libraries across the city.
The Scattergood Foundation is a member of the Rebuilding Community Infrastructure (Rebuild) Leadership Funder’s Group, led by the City of Philadelphia Rebuild team and the Philanthropy Network of Greater Philadelphia. Participation in this group led to the provision of in-kind evaluation consultation by Scattergood to Rebuild staff to develop a theory of change and logic model across approximately three months. A preliminary logic model was developed through a group process. Learnings from this consultation contributed to the decision to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) from The William Penn Foundation to further develop a strategy map to guide the evaluation of Rebuild.
