The Robert Carr Fund seeks external support to evaluate the grant portfolios and secretarial management during the 2019-2021 and 2022-2024 grant cycles.
The Robert Carr Fund (RCF) is the world’s leading international fund focused on funding regional and global networks led by and involving and serving inadequately served populations (ISPs).
As a cooperative effort of donors and civil society, the Robert Carr Fund is structured to maximize participation, empowerment, equity, transparency and accountability in our fundraising and grant making.
The Robert Carr Fund works to mobilize and deliver core and strategic funding for regional and global networks to achieve four outcomes:
- Protecting and promoting human rights
- Improving access to HIV services
- Mobilizing and monitoring national and international funding for human rights and health
- Building capacity of civil society and community networks
Our goal: Improved health, inclusion and well-being for inadequately served populations (ISPs)
Evaluation of the 2019 – 2021 and 2022 – 2024 Grant Making
In the 2019 – 2021 grant cycle, RCF invested $33.5 million in 62 unique global and regional civil society and community-led networks in a portfolio of grantees approved by the International Steering Committee (ISC). In 2021, $32 million was allocated to 87 networks for the grant cycle of 2022 – 2024.
The Robert Carr Fund seeks external support to evaluate the grant portfolio for both periods and to evaluate the secretarial management of the grants during both cycles. The evaluation should capture feedback from the parties involved in the grant cycle. This feedback, together with key documents, and the evaluations, shall be used by the consultant to produce a concise evaluation report.
For detailed information, please refer to the Terms of Reference.
