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.
FCIM’s goals include:
Learning, knowledge exchange, and aligned investments among funders
Engage in shared learning on research, tools, policy, and practice around measurement and assessment
Share strategies and investments to foster alignment and collaboration
Investigate the intersection of measurement x equity
Building field knowledge around measurement and equity
Support communications work to enhance field building in measurement and equity
