How the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Uses a Learning Mindset to Support Grantees in Measuring Impact

"I don't think it's a good use of our dollars to ask grantees to spend their time on reporting. We want them to spend their time doing what they do well - doing what we're funding them to do!

So we really have to ask big questions and think about how we actually free them up to do their best work. Ultimately, we're pushing ourselves to try new things to really disrupt the system."

- Jessica Mindnich, Senior Director at Kauffman Foundation
