Press Release: The Melton Foundation Annual Impact Report 2022 is now Live!

The year 2022 marked the mid-way point of the Melton Foundation’s Strategic Plan 2020 – 2025. For the last three years, the foundation has been aiming to amplify and document its impact, increase access and visibility, align organizational structures, and work towards a positive budget. In turn, our programs and activities, our approach to partnerships, and our internal structures and processes have seen tremendous progress and development. Having seen this evolution, 2022 was an opportune time for looking back, analyzing if the ideas we had sown in 2019 have let us reap the desired harvest, and deciding our focus for the remainder of the strategy. We thus overhauled our Monitoring and Evaluation framework to provide us with the information we need for future decision-making, we developed an overarching framework of Global Citizenship to guide our educational programs, and we took a detailed look at everything that has been tested and piloted in previous years to see what we have learned. 2023 will be dedicated to using this learning in creating one coherent vision - for our work, our foundation, and for the impact we create.
