Building Nonprofit Capacity to Evaluate, Learn and Grow Impact
Presented by Grantmakers for Effective Organization’s Scaling What Works initiative, in partnership with Gateway Center for Giving
Wednesday, August 15, 2012
8 a.m. – 12 p.m. CT
High-performing nonprofit organizations seek and use data and feedback to continually assess and improve their work. And, behind these efforts are supportive grantmakers who embrace the role they can play in helping grantees make effective use of information. These grantmakers acknowledge that before nonprofits can expand their impact, they must understand what works. They also realize that a prerequisite to identifying what is working in their own philanthropic efforts is helping grantees learn what is working for them on the ground. Join us for a workshop delivered by Innovation Network on how grantmakers can support nonprofits in their efforts to evaluate, learn, improve and, ultimately expand their impact. Participants will discuss evaluation readiness, culture and practice on the behalf of grantmaker and grantees, and explore approaches and tools for building evaluation capacity.
Where: Missouri Foundation for Health
Open to: Grantmaking Members (Free), Grantmaking NonMembers ($50), GEO Members (Free)
