for general operating support  
FSG continues to drive some of the most important conversations about the practice of social change. The January 2011 cover story of the Harvard Business Review was co-written by the organization's founders, Mark Kramer and Michael Porter, and offers a new way to think about cross-sector collaboration. During a time of significant expansion and growth at FSG, the Hewlett Foundation has offered general operating support to the organization. The investment has paid off with the launch of FSG's new Strategic Learning and Evaluation Center, the first entity designed to bring together the skill sets of evaluation and management consulting.
