The S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation has a strong commitment to building and scaling organizations capable of continuing to achieve results after the Foundation's sunset in 2020. The Resiliency Guide is an aid for Foundation staff and grantees as they assess an organization's ability to adapt and achieve long-term success in a dynamic context.
Originally developed in 2014, the Resiliency Guide underwent several iterations over the years as the Foundation’s understanding of resilience evolved. Published in 2018, Version 3.0 was the latest of three closely related iterations and is preserved here for archival purposes. In 2020, the Guide was overhauled based on new research; see Version 5.0 for the final edition.
