Interviews with state decisionmakers

Edge Research

Lisa Dropkin and Pam Loeb of Edge Research have completed 60 interviews with government decisionmakers—appointed and elected—as well as some news media editors and reporters in 15 states.

The interviews tested the perceptions of foundations and their roles with these decisionmakers. And explored questions such as: which ways of framing the roles and value of foundations resonate most?; how can foundations be a more valued partner?; and what are the drivers of decisionmaker perceptions of philanthropy?.
