Funders’ Collaborative for Innovative Measurement

Funders’ Collaborative for Innovative Measurement (FCIM) is composed of GTY Steering Committee organizations investing in measurement and assessment — defined as research, tools, programs, and policy relating to understanding interventions and environments that support whole-child development.

FCIM members recognize measurement and assessment as a powerful space to understand the dimensions of young people’s social and emotional development, as well as the environments or contexts that create enabling conditions for thriving.

FCIM members recognize that it is critical to measure equity in education. Thus, the overarching question FCIM asks is: How might measurement play a role in dismantling inequitable education and OST structures and systems?

FCIM members’ investments support the field to advance research, tools, practice, and policy focused on conditions that support young people’s wellbeing.
