data collection

Monitoring and feedback are critical to investment success. We work with investors, their grantees, and their partners to create easy-to-use online tools that enable honest and timely data and story capture, allowing everyone involved to understand the 'numbers

and nuance' of their efforts.



















storytelling and learning
pfc knows change is all about the message-compelling, impactful, authentic. That is what moves an audience to action. To help tell the story of change we tap the talents of artists, journalists, videographers, and communications firms. Working with videographer Sarah Hesterman we told the story of how women in philanthropy were moving women out of poverty and what they learned from the experience. These videos can be viewed below.
