    Pros

    The current version of Stupski Foundation appears on the right path, tackling some big issues in a hypothesis-driven approach (which I'd posit is rare for a foundation). Few points:

    --Content is engaging: issues tackled are top of mind in the social space, and the Foundation is not only looking at working in traditional manners but also tech-driven ideas, which is exciting
    --Management values outside opinion and incorporates recommendations: contractor work is highly valued (since much of the Foundation's work is built on it!)
    --Attracts humble, high-performers: have been impressed with not only the full-time staff, but also the contractors - colleagues are both smart and relaxed
    --Problem-solving approach: Foundation uses an 'answer first' hypothesis-driven approach, which keeps most of the work targeted and going after the right questions
    --Compensation: Foundation provides competitive pay for the social sector

    Cons

    --Workload: turn around on documents can be fast-paced, especially given the cadence of Board meetings. This is also partly due to a small team covering very large issue areas
    --Management bandwidth: partly tied to the workload, management is stretched thin, which means at times it's hard to get feedback on content (though this allows the independently driven to push ahead with ideas)

    Advice to Management

    Foundation is tackling very big issues, so continue to tightly define the target populations and outcomes sought to keep them narrow and addressable, and ensure there isn't scope creep into tangential areas.
