Implementation Markers and the Practice of Outcome-Focused Philanthropy

May 23, 20191 min read

In the social sector, implementation markers are an important starting point as organizations move toward the practice of Outcome-Focused Philanthropy.

“Implementation marker” is a catchall term referring to particular activities, developments or events (internal or external) that help staff understand whether they are making progress in the near term.

This guide, provided by the Hewlett Foundation, is a deep dive into implementation markers –  what they are and how to set, collect, reflect on and use them.

Originally intended for Hewlett Foundation staff, the information and guidance provided are useful to other foundations and grantees as they move toward setting their own markers.
