Media Analysis: A One-Year Follow-Up Analysis from Baseline Report

Fund for Shared Insight: Media Analysis July 2014–June 2015

ORS Impact conducted a follow-up media analysis to see if there was any uptick in discourse on feedback loops and openness one year after Shared Insight’s launch. They reviewed relevant blogs, periodicals, and reports to assess changes over the timeframe from July 2014 to June 2015.

Key findings

  • More Chatter, More Alignment – Compared to previous year, there is slightly more content with greater alignment around beneficiary feedback loops
  • Similar Venues, New Voices – A similar set of publications, including blogs and periodicals, contain content related to feedback while several new blogs launched that cover beneficiary feedback issues
  • There was an increase in the number of authors writing about feedback loops
  • More instances of media pieces advocating for feedback use compared to previous year, both in nonprofit and foundation practice
  • The uptick in discourse is likely connected to the Fund for Shared Insight launch, but shows promise of taking off beyond Shared Insight’s work.
