Throughout the field of philanthropy there is a growing interest in performance measurement. Critics have worried that in focusing on measurement, funders tend to support easily quantifiable service delivery work, rather than say, advocacy or public policy research, which is harder to assess. But is it really so hard to measure the results of advocacy and other activities associated with social justice philanthropy? Or are funders afraid to get involved in areas they see as controversial, political and messy?
