Support for Strategic Planning

Mathematica offers services to help foundation leaders and staff explore and develop new program areas, strategies, and grant initiatives. To ensure that planning processes benefit from current thought leadership, we identify, recruit, and convene technical expert or advisory panels; we also conduct environmental scans, including expert interviews and literature reviews and syntheses.

Featured Work

To support strategic planning by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation in its efforts to study how young children’s health affects their readiness for and success in school, we conducted an environmental scan of the evidence base and the relevant interventions.
