In anticipation of its 10th anniversary, EPIP decided to look ahead, and also to look back. In 2010 it engaged in a strategic planning process and developed its first strategic plan, including updated vision and mission statements.
EPIP also wanted to look back at the last 10 years to better understand its impact on emerging leaders and on the field of philanthropy, and to inform the implementation of its strategic plan. To accomplish this, EPIP commissioned Putnam Community Investment Consulting, Inc., a national philanthropy consulting and evaluation firm, to conduct an impact assessment.
The full report maps EPIP’s organizational growth and accomplishments, and the concrete ways in which EPIP has been able to support and provide unique leadership development opportunities for philanthropy’s emerging leaders. The findings are informed by both quantitative and qualitative data.
