The Foundation’s goal in evaluation is to learn from its grantmaking and share findings with others. RWJF wants to inform the field about what works, what doesn’t, and what was learned in the process. We continually publish an array of lessons learned from our grantmaking and long-term investments so that others can learn from both our successes and failures along the way.
