Story
Introduction

The Rensselaerville Institute

We:

§   Are “the think tank with muddy boots” as described in The Wall Street Journal. An independent and educational center; our business is results.

§   Help two groups: those who invest to improve human lives (foundations, governments, individuals), and nonprofits and other groups who implement programs for people in need.

§   Develop, test and apply Outcome Tools, which help investors and implementors shift from a focus on activities to a focus on results.

Our Mission:

§   Supports foundations, governments and individual donors to invest in social programs with the same rigor as investors seeking financial returns with investor programs.

§   Shows nonprofit and community organizations how to set and track targets to achieve significant gains for those served with implementor programs.

§   Broadly educates grant-makers and grant-seekers on outcome tools at our residential learning campus, The Rensselaerville Meeting Center where 10,000 people a year attend meetings that matter.

Our:

§   Signature program, School Turnaround, puts in one place everything we know about creating human gain in a challenging area.

§   Community Sparkplugs program applies outcome tools to improve lives through volunteer leaders and civic engagement.
