Meet the NCRP team


Lisa Ranghelli

Senior Director of Evaluation and Learning

Lisa Ranghelli is NCRP’s senior director of assessment and special projects. As primary author of Power Moves: Your essential philanthropy assessment guide for equity and justice, she challenges grantmakers to explore the role of power to achieve greater impact. She also oversees NCRP’s internal learning and evaluation. She developed Power Moves based on the methodology she created for Philamplify, an innovative initiative that assessed a dozen major foundations with a social justice and equity lens. Previously, she directed NCRP’s Grantmaking for Community Impact Project, culminating in her report, Leveraging Limited Dollars, which documented a return on investment of $115 for each dollar foundations invested in advocacy, community organizing and civic engagement. For that project she developed the methodology and authored or co-authored five of seven place-based ROI reports. Prior to joining NCRP in 2008, Lisa spent 15 years promoting advocacy and civic engagement, both in the nonprofit and public sectors. Notably she served as deputy director of public policy at Community Change, where she helped grassroots organizations mobilize successfully around federal and state policy issues. Based in Greenfield, Massachusetts, she is a board member of the Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts. Lisa graduated from Wesleyan University and holds a master of regional planning degree from Cornell University.
