Nonprofits, funders, and researchers all want to see evidence that social change programs make a difference. But funders want evidence nonprofits don't always have, researchers develop evidence nonprofits can't always use, and nonprofits can be left with few answers about how best to build evidence. As a result, demand for evidence-based programs far outstrips supply.
We want to change that.
By combining a wide variety of resources into one platform, we can build a model for evidence-based program development and funding grounded in nonprofits' needs— and make a real difference in the lives of the people nonprofits, funders, and researchers are ultimately trying to help.
