Event description
This Program Eval 101 workshop shows the power of program evaluation to demonstrate impact & provide data for ongoing program improvement!

About this event

More and more, foundations and donors are demanding that nonprofits demonstrate program impact; that organizations are fulfilling your mission in measurable ways.

A comprehensive and realistic program evaluation system is the way do to just that: to capture data in a systemic way that demonstrates clear and measurable impact on program participants.

Done right, program evaluation supports not just program planning, but also development, marketing and communication efforts. You can turn those data into dollars!

Walk away from this interactive workshop with the confidence, tools, and steps for how YOU can get started integrating program evaluation at your organization today!

“Because of having this program evaluation system in place, our annual fundraising from foundations increased by 677% and annual fundraising from individual donors increased by 753%.” - Brandi Tuck, Executive Director with Portland Homeless Family Solutions

“The data helped us secure two of our largest grants to date. Even though increasing our grant funding was the primary reason we started this process, the real success is our ongoing ability to gather data that is relevant to our work and using it to continually improve our program.” - Julia Doty, Program Director, NW Housing Alternatives

Early career evaluators who want to learn how nonprofit program evaluation works in practice.
