University of Minnesota Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs students Julia
Zhu, Robin Smothers and Siarhei Lisichonak worked with Sheltering Arms Foundation to
assess the organization’s advocacy grantmaking practices and outcomes.
After interviewing several of the foundation’s grantees, conducting a survey on similar
foundations, reviewing existing literature on advocacy, advocacy grantmaking and
advocacy grantmaking evaluation, the group concluded that Sheltering Arms’ advocacy
grantmaking strategy could benefit greatly from including a more formalized evaluation
in several parts of the grant process.
