William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
Evaluation is woven into the fabric of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, which works to help people build measurably better lives around the world. Hewlett uses evaluation to learn whether its programmes and grantees are achieving their goals and uses evaluation to help teams learn what is working and adjust course. Beyond its own programmes, Hewlett has been a major contributor to the field of impact evaluation in global development. A recent blog by Kristen Stelljes and Ruth Levine of Hewlett’s Global Development and Population Program describes these contributions, remaining challenges for the field and the outcomes Hewlett hopes to achieve through its future impact evaluation funding.
